Movie theaters still can't open in NYS

Cuomo added that when it comes to determining what to reopen and what to keep closed, it is the 'level of risk' each recreation carries.

ALBANY, N.Y. — If you were hopefully looking to get out of the house and go see a movie at an AMC or Regal movie theater anytime soon, Governor Cuomo has other plans.

When asked during a COVID-19 update on Monday about the reopening of movie theaters since gyms were allowed to reopen, Governor Cuomo said that gyms are more essential to New Yorkers than movie theaters. 

Cuomo added that when it comes to determining what to reopen and what to keep closed, it is the 'level of risk' each recreation carries. 

In the meantime while movie theaters, like AMC and Regal, wait for their chance to reopen, there has been an increase in pop-up drive-in movie theaters showing movies across Western New York.
