Major U.S. theater chains announced friday that they will not require wearing masks to viewers already vaccinated against coronavirus. AMC, the largest film network in the U.S., noted in a statement that this decision is in line with the relaxation of pandemic measures formulated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).” Viewers who are fully vaccinated will no longer be required to wear masks in AMC cinemas unless required to do so by local or state regulations,” he said. AMC further detailed that those who are not vaccinated should wear a mask when they go to see a movie. Regal and Cinemark, which are respectively the second and third largest cinema chain in the U.S., announced similar measures to those of AMC. After a ruinous 2020 for cinemas because of the pandemic, the exhibition industry hopes to retrace the situation by 2021 which, thanks to vaccines, has bringed the country closer to a situation increasingly similar to pre-coronavirus normality. Hollywood studios also hope to box this year and exit the numerous superproductions whose big screen premiere was delayed until the pandemic was under control. Thus, this weekend films such as Disney’s “Cruella” and Emma Stone as the protagonist will arrive on the billboard; or the terror of “A Quiet Place Part II” by Emily Blunt.In addition, throughout June will be presented highly expected films such as the Latin musical “In the Heights”, based on the eponymous work of Lin-Manuel Miranda; or the ninth installment of the exciting and successful “Fast & Furious” action saga, titled “F9”.
