Premier Doug Ford says his team is looking into a proposal by theatre chain Cineplex to allow more people inside Ontario’s movie theatres.
As per Stage 3 guidelines, only 50 people can be inside a single building. This applies to all theatres, regardless of their size or number of screens.
Ford is lending some apparent sympathy, saying it doesn’t make sense to have only a few people watching each movie.
Big-chain theatres have been closed in Durham since March.
