Palace Cinemas has become the first movie chain to announce a reopening date as coronavirus restrictions ease, with social distancing meaning at least 65 per cent of seats are expected to be vacant initially. The operator of 20 arthouse cinemas plans to resume screenings on July 2, 2020 - earlier than expected given the major cinema chains, led by Event, Hoyts and Village, have been planning their returns around the release of Christopher Nolan's thriller Tenet on 15 July 2020. Victoria has allowed cinemas to reopen for a maximum of 50 people per auditorium from 22 June 2020, but Palace chief Benjamin Zeccola believes restrictions will have eased enough in all states and territories for screenings to resume 10 days later. Instead of six sessions a day, he expected there would be three initially due to the need for intensive cleaning between screenings. With groups able to sit together - separated from other patrons - cinemas would have just 20 to 35 per cent of seats occupied initially. Palace plans to resume the French Film Festival which was cut short in March.
