China’s cinemas are starting to reopen after being closed for nearly six months because of the coronavirus pandemic. But strict measures remain in place to prevent the spread of Covid-19, and there were only 130,000 tickets sold across the country when they opened on July 20, 2020. China has grown to become the world's second-largest movie market, and in 2019, the national box office earnings set a record of 64.3 billion yuan (US$9 billion). But as the initial epicentre of the pandemic, Chinese cinemas were the first in the world to bear the brunt of the pandemic, and many have already been forced out of business. Over 13,170 companies related to the cinema industry in China have been closed during the pandemic.
