On 28 August 2020 South African cinemas are reopening for business. This marks 5 months since they closed due to the COVID-19 lockdown in South Africa. The #GoBIGagain campaign is ushering in the reopening to celebrate the opportunity to watch movies on the big screen again.
Users are urged to visit the GoBIGagain microsite to learn everything they need to know about the reopening of cinemas in South Africa this weekend.
Of course, visiting a cinema for the next few months is not going to be the same so there are a few things you need to keep in mind before heading out to watch a movie.
- Online bookings in advance are encouraged – Cinemas are now limited to the number of people allowed inside. Book to make sure you get a spot in the new limited-capacity setups.
- Wear a mask – Don’t be a Karen. All staff and customers need to wear masks during your cinema visit. Customers may take their masks off to eat and drink snack only inside the cinema auditoria but are urged to put them back on afterwards.
- Temperature checks – Everyone will have their temperature checked upon arrival.
- Sanitize – Customers are urged to sanitize their hands at the designated stations throughout the cinema.
- Social distancing – Please practice safe distancing in the ticket and snack area leaving at least 1.5m of distance between you and another person. Find out more on the GoBIGagain site.
