The UK Cinema Association has released safety guidelines for re-opening of drive-in cinemas, which are allowed to open in England from Monday.
Although there are only 20 drive-in cinemas in the United States and the United States has not adopted such a concept, their reconstruction is being seen as the first step in recovering the U.S. cinema sector from the COVID-19 lockdown.
Perhaps the drive-thru movies will see some resurgence in the coming weeks, and the guidelines are intended to provide advice for operators to ensure the safety of customers and employees.
The advice focuses on areas such as hygiene, maintaining social distance and providing food and drink. The complete guide can be found here.
Phil Klopp, chief executive of the UK Cinema Association, said: “I think it’s true that so far we’ve been learning a lot about drive-in cinema operations, given their relative shortcomings.
“While we’ll be glad to see drive-ins enrich in the coming weeks, months and years, our main focus is still on the hundreds of movie venues across the UK that have been closed for nearly three months to open as soon as possible. Guidelines for these sites Our work continues and we hope to make an announcement soon.
