The Government of Ontario is officially moving the province into ‘Step 3’ of its reopening plan, which will see the long-awaited return of indoor theatres.
🚨 The wait is over, Ontario! 🚨

This means that Ontarians can finally go back to indoor cinemas starting July 16th, the same day Space Jam: A New Legacy releases. Other big recent releases include Black Widow, F9 and A Quiet Place Part II.
Indoor theatres have been closed in most places of the province since November, and all regions since March. On June 11th, drive-in theatres were allowed to operate under Step 1 of the reopening plan, which was the only way to see movies that didn’t offer any streaming option, like F9 or A Quiet Place Part II.
As part of the reopening guidelines, indoor cinemas are required to cap capacity at 50 percent. At Cineplex, this means that you’ll need to pre-purchase tickets online or via its mobile app. Cineplex says more information on when tickets will be sold will come on Wednesday, July 14th.
