Manitoba drive-in theatres get green light to open for season after province reverses initial decision | CBC News
It will be lights, camera and action after all for the two drive-in movie theatres in Manitoba.
The outdoor facilities initially didn’t make the list of non-essential businesses that were allowed to reopen Monday, in the first phase of the province’s plan to relax rules put in place to curb the spread of the coronavirus that causes COVID-19.
Movie theatres won’t be allowed to reopen until a later phase of that plan.
However, the province posted on its site late Tuesday afternoon that drive-in theatres will be allowed to open for the season.
Dawn Hlady, who owns the Big Island drive-in theatre in Flin Flon, says she’s looking forward to kicking off a new season later this month — especially after initially being told outdoor theatres wouldn’t be allowed to reopen so soon.
