Residents looking to watch a movie at a theatre will now have to make different plans.
On Monday night, Cineplex said all their theatres across Canada –will be temporarily closed until April 2.
Ellis Jacob, president of Cineplex said the “health and safety” of employees and guests are important and that “while measures like enhanced cleaning protocols and social-distancing policies were put in place, the time has come for us to do more.”
“Based on the publicly stated guidance from multiple public health authorities, including recent government directives and the escalating dangers of community spread, we are temporarily closing our network of entertainment venues.”
Full refunds will be given to movie goers who have pre-purchased tickets and bookings made.
