This is a decision that will give the balm to the heart to the patrons of theatres and cinema. The Minister of Culture, Franck Riester, has just declared this morning on Europe 1 that "there was a council of defence on Friday, which went a little further than what we imagined in terms of the organization of the cinema as spectacle, that is to say that there is more of a limitation of 50% of gauge."read also : The operators of cinema between "enthusiasm" and "anxiety" on the eve of the reopening
And in order to specify this new protocol déconfinement, the minister added: "We can sit down together when one is in the same social group, that is to say, if we are friends and it comes to the cinema or to the theater together. On the other hand, you leave your seat away if you don't know the people sitting next to and it may remove the mask once it is seated. We wear the mask to get to his place, because obviously we can meet people."read also : Elephant man, in the spotlight, to the reopening of the theaters
Hit by the crisis of the coronavirus, with losses in excess of two billion euros, the performing arts in France calls for "a déconfinement total and without distancing", alerting on a sinking social if there is no real recovery.
Producers and artists also denounce a policy of two weights two measures, the distance being no more applied, for example, in trains and planes. Questioned on this, Mr. Riester said that the government was working towards a solution by September. "I understand this reaction", he said.
Then immediately he wished to clarify his remarks: "there are vents in the TGV and in the planes that allow to renew much faster the air in confined spaces and it is one of the reasons why there is a difference."
Finally, the minister concluded speech with optimism, stating: "the president of the Republic has asked us to work in the coming days so that by 10th July, we can make a decision for the beginning of September and go maybe even further in the déconfinement and raise the distance to a seat between social groups."
