They didn't stop there though. In a bid to entice the public back into theatres, tickets will only be $5!
Select theatres and entertainment venues across Ontario will reopen this Friday, July 31, 2020.
There will be new safety protocols in place including reduced seating, occupancy limitations, enforced social distancing, limited food offerings, equipping staff with PPE, and only accepting debit and credit payments.
