NEW YORK (AP) — Movie theaters in New York state can reopen beginning Oct. 23 with restrictions on audience size and other precautions in place, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Saturday. Theaters in New York City aren’t included, and counties must have a positivity rate below 2% on a 14-day average and have no “cluster zones.” Audiences will be restricted to 25% of capacity with a maximum of 50 people per screen, Cuomo said at his briefing. Masks will be required and there will be assigned seating to ensure social distancing.
