CHATTER AWAY: Overnight Open Thread

Deadline Hollywood reports:

We have just received word that No. 2 film exhibitor Regal Cinemas is requiring all patrons to wear face masks. In an updated policy made public on the chain’s website, “As related to our employees, guests will also be required to wear masks. Disposable masks will be made available as needed,” noted Regal.

Regal’s previous policy was similar to AMC’s initially reported Thursday before it drew controversy, along with Cinemark’s, which was that face-mask wearing would be enforced in those areas mandating them, but only encouraged in those pockets of America where restrictions have eased.

Regal will begin re-opening its theaters on July 10 after being closed since March due to the coronavirus.
