NYC movie theaters can reopen on March 5. Here's how many of you said you're planning on going.


The AMC Magic Johnson Harlem 9 will reopen on March 5.

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:
