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.
