CHATTER AWAY: Overnight Open Thread

Deadline Hollywood reports:

Italy’s cinemas will get back to business from June 15, the government announced Saturday as it outlined an overall easing of lockdown protocols in what was the initial epicenter of the European continent’s coronavirus outbreak.

As with other markets that are beginning to lift restrictions on moviegoing, there will be social distancing measures in place including staggered seating and online booking.

Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte on Saturday said, “We are facing a calculated risk with the awareness that the contagion curve could rise again.” But he also noted concern over a severely damaged economic and social structure, saying the country could not afford to wait for a vaccine.
