Deadline Hollywood reports:
As the number of new cases of the coronavirus shows signs of abating in China, a smattering of cinemas re-opened in a handful of provinces across the country this weekend. On Friday, there were 486 movie theaters back at work, while Saturday the total was upped to 507, local reports say.
These small steps to get China back up and running come at a time when the rest of the world’s movie theaters are essentially all closed for business. Today, Australia became the latest major market to shutter its cinemas. Still in operation to a degree are Brazil, Russia, Mexico, Korea and Japan though each with limitations.
