Governor Cuomo announced yesterday that NYC movie theaters can reopen at 25% capacity starting Friday, March 5—mask-wearing will be mandatory, of course.
Soon after, the AMC Magic Johnson Harlem 9 confirmed it would open its doors on March 5.
In the meantime, TCU conducted a poll on Instagram asking how many of you were planning on going to the movies.
A whopping 82 percent of you said you were going to wait.
Here are some of your responses, from the many nos to the few yeses:
"Hard no 😅"—@aidaahmed
"[T]oo soon. Too many variants."—@blacksnapperdesign
"“You know I’m gonna pass on that. (In Aretha voice)"—@uptownharlem35
"Miss the movies, but not that much. Maybe later this year."—@brooke.roechelle.pierce
"On the fence. Miss going to the movies so much but not sure if it’s safe just yet."—@jmjaxon
"After I’m fully vaccinated, yes!"—@nysmirk
"I'm going for the popcorn. I miss the buttery deliciousness!"—@apri1adams
And everyone's favorite opinion (8 likes and counting), unrelated to the reopening:
