Sanitary measures in the rules

The City of Quebec promises that drive-ins will adhere to the safety instructions still in force. It is planned to install a lot of toilets on the participating sites, we are talking about a toilet for 10 vehicles.

The mayor had promised, the pop-corn, there will be. The FCVQ is in communication with the different dealers to find a way to safely sell it, and so fix prices.

No competition

Quebec City also promises that drive-ins will not enter into competition with the theaters inside. They are not even allowed to open their doors.

“The exclusivity of the major innovations will be left in the halls, if they will be able to open this summer, and we wish them,” said Marie-Josée Savard, vice-president of the executive committee to the City.

This is a start, we learn together to work in a pandemic situation. We hope to add a mesh to be interesting in the summer we will knit”, concludes the general director of the cinema Festival of the city of Quebec.
