Planning for Optimal Cinema Occupancy
in a Post Covid-19 World

Late 2019 and early 2020 has put the global cinema industry under intense pressure, with the exhibition sector being forced to close due to the international Coronavirus pandemic.


In re-opening, cinemas will initially - and for a currently undefined period - have to operate on a reduced occupancy basis, with social distancing and sanitation measures in place. CTC would like to offer the following recommendations and considerations to exhibitors in order to help safely maximise occupancy levels.
