Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer announced today that movie theaters will be able to reopen Monday, December 21, 2020 under relaxed restrictions, along with bowling alleys, casinos, and "similar venues." Indoor dining will remain banned, at least through January 15, 2021, according to an article published recently in the Detroit Free Press:

Michigan's casinos, movie theaters, bowling alleys and similar venues will be allowed to reopen on Monday, with some restrictions in place, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer announced Friday. High schools also will be allowed to resume in-person classes next week, she said. 

But indoor dining will remain banned, at least through Jan. 15. 

The changes amount to rolling back some, but not all, restrictions implemented through controversial emergency orders aimed at curbing the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. State health department orders banning in-person classes, indoor dining and many business operations were implemented in November and extended earlier this month, but were set to expire Sunday. The new order was announced Friday but takes effect Monday.

This should be very good news for Michigan's 170+ movie theaters and moviegoers that were looking forward to seeing movies during the Christmas holiday weekend, including Monster Hunter, News of the World, and Wonder Woman 1984.
