As of this Friday, several entertainment venues, including theaters, will take place at the reopening in Miami-Dade, as announced by the mayor of Barcelona, Carlos Giménez, on Wednesday.

Giménez said he would sign an executive order Wednesday that will let theaters operate at 50% of his ability and customers will not be allowed to eat “popcorn” while watching the film, as food and drink will be banned inside movie theaters, he said. There will be designated areas where people can eat.

The mayor said this measure was also approved by Drs. Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birx, both members of the White House team before COVID-19. Doctors are pleased that Covid-19’s positivity rate and other metrics have remained low, Giménez said during a press conference in front of the Stephen P. Clark Center, located at 111 NW First Street.

In addition to cinemas, theaters, convention sites, party rooms, bowling alleys, game rooms or arcades are among the places that can open from the coming to 50 percent of their capacity and will have to follow the protocols to stop the spread of COVID-19.

The rule banning food inside movie theaters is stricter than Broward’s rules. In theaters in that county, which have been open since June, customers can take off their masks while eating and drinking in their seats.


In June, as coronavirus cases began to rebound and after being closed for three months, the county began approving plans to reopen entertainment sites, including some strip clubs.

When hospitals began to fill up, the mayor backed down by closing these spaces again and imposing stricter rules, including the curfew that remains in effect.

At that time several municipal mayors, including Miami Mayor Francis Suarez, said the county had made many openings very quickly.

The announcement comes more than two weeks after they allowed service within the restaurants. On the other hand, this week, the county reopened the zoo and started a new, less stringent curfew schedule.


Mayor Giménez confirmed that he was considering opening the bars and strip clubs in two weeks, after a week repeating that they would not open until there was a vaccine.

He said he would start meeting with the team to discuss the appropriate protocols for reopening and advanced that would allow service at the tables and that the bars should remain closed, as in restaurants.

Gimenéz confirmed that they were waiting to make the reopening in two weeks, after radio announcer Andy Slater announced on Twitter that he had confirmed that some strip clubs would open in two weeks.
