Cinemas are noticing a dramatic decline in number of visitors due to mondmaskerplicht

Belgian exhibitors to understand and be in solidarity with the decision to make the wearing of surgical masks for the safety and security of visitors and staff – to commit to a public place where people are in the crowd to move.

The decision, on the other hand, the government for one week after re-opening, and, without any consultation with the industry, the wearing of surgical masks is to commit it in cinemas during the projection of a film, for a drop in visit to cinema, with more than 25% are made compared to the previous weekend, and with up to 80% compared to the same weekend in 2019. Even if it is allowed to take the mask off to get a bite to eat and a drink to eat during the movie, and the consumption of them is also severely reduced. A movie theater cost-effective use it was already extremely difficult, under the previously-imposed restrictions in physical distancing from up to 1.5 meters + no more than 200 visitors, which is equivalent to a decrease in the room capacity by as much as 70%, but this additional measure, it is impossible.

On social media, it appears that the bioscoopbezoeker do not understand that they were in the movie theater, where there was about him no less than 1.5 metres away from him, and if there is we don’t talk during the movie, which will also be required to have protective mask, to keep. The lack of understanding will only be greater when he was after that, go to a coffee shop or restaurant, where people can move around and talk to each other – not required protective mask to be worn.
