The health emergency forced the cinemas and theaters’ closure, but after about a year from the pandemic beginning, the Italian technical-scientific committee green-lighted the reopening starting from March 27, 2021.

The new Italian Government headed by Mario Draghi could reopen cinemas and theaters. In fact, the new Ministerial Decree should confirm the current measures until 6 April, but with a great novelty for the audiovisual sector. In fact, the technical-scientific committee has green-lightedthe reopening of cinemas and theaters from 27 March. This measure could restart the industry and give a new boost to a sector hit by the health emergency. Several films have chosen streaming platforms for the release, but with the reopening, moviegoers will be able to relive the big screen experience with new titles on the schedule. This is certainly a positive sign for the entire industry.
