Galaxy Cinemas North Bay is not on the list of Cineplex theatres set to reopen tomorrow.

The Canadian cinema operator will begin with 25 locations across the province as part of a wider phased return to business during COVID-19.

The company will be permitted to admit up to 50 moviegoers per auditorium.

SilverCity Sudbury Cinemas is one of the 25.

Sudbury has seen 22 new cases of COVID-19 in the last week and a half while the North Bay Parry Sound District hasn’t recorded a new case since July 6th.

The company says it plans to require guests to wear masks inside the theatre “in communities where it is mandated.”
