Movie theaters and hotels in Singapore are getting a reprieve as the city-state gradually reopens its economy after a lockdown.

Cinemas will be able to open their doors to movie-goers starting on July 13, limiting the maximum capacity to 50 people in each theater hall, according to a government statement. As many as five people from the same group will be allowed to sit together, and seats will be reconfigured to provide the 1 meter (3.3 feet) distance for other guests. Mandatory temperature checks will be carried out before entry.
