China Re-Opens First Movie Theater After Coronavirus Shut Down, No One Shows Up

A theater in China has decided to reopen its’ doors to the public after being locked up since the end of January due to coronavirus. However, no one showed up!

Variety reports that the Zhongying Golden Palm Cinema in Urumqi, the capital of China’s vast northwestern region of Xinjiang, offered 22 scheduled screenings.

No customers had come by the evening, Ding, the man in charge shared with Sohu Entertainment.

“Everyone’s awareness of virus prevention measures remains very strong,” he said.

The Xinjiang region has had no new confirmed coronavirus cases for 27 consecutive days and the Golden Palm planned to reopen after receiving notices that it was okay to do so from both the local government and the local propaganda bureau.

“We can’t stay closed forever. We can only cooperate with the notices, and test the situation a bit, and see what feedback we get from the public,” Ding added. “We want to take things slowly. If the reaction is pretty good, we’ll slowly re-open bit by bit, and if it’s bad, we’ll stay shut.”

There’s a few places in the United States that refuses to close their doors. Find out where they are!
