Bakit ngayon pa? Ruffy Biazon questions timing of cinema reopening

0

Ruffy Biazon could not comprehend why the government suddenly wants to reopen cinemas on the eve of the supposed delivery of COVID-19 vaccines.

With no vaccines on hand late February, the Muntinlupa congressman thinks people won’t be confident to head out to theaters this time – add the fact that there are barely any movies produced in the middle of the pandemic.

He also doubts if the box office will make any money.

“I wonder what’s the compelling reason behind allowing cinemas to open… with restrictions on occupancy, will it be enough to even cover overhead expenses?,” the politiko said.

“Will the sales outweigh the risks? With so many “dont’s”, isn’t it easier to just have one (don’t open cinemas)?”
