My guess is that you'll basically be buying multiple seats so you and your buddy can decide how you want to space yourselves among the total number of seats you have. If not, I guess you could make separate purchases with seats next to each other and that would give you spacing between the two people.I was looking at the Cinemark info, and it said they would block out seats next to parties. Like it you go with a significant other or household member you’d be sitting right next to each other and the seats on each side would be blocked. But what about if you wanted to go with your friend? I’d still want at least a seat between us. Would I have to purchase 3 seats? Of course they couldn’t sit anyone in between you, but will they allow you to purchase two seats that aren’t next to each other? It doesn’t make sense it not, but they weren’t clear on that.
I‘m not likely to risk a theater this summer, especially since people won’t be wearing masks, but I’d still like to better understand how that is supposed to work. Anyone aware of more specifics on how the seating is supposed to work at Cinemark?
They have significantly reduced ticket prices and said concessions would be discounted as well, so buying extra seats isn’t too rough I suppose. I don’t think I’ll risk it anytime soon, but I also like to know my options.My guess is that you'll basically be buying multiple seats so you and your buddy can decide how you want to space yourselves among the total number of seats you have.

YAY!After the push back against AMC and its reversal on mask wearing,now Regal will require a mask be worn in a movie theater.
EXCLUSIVE: We have just received word that No. 2 film exhibitor Regal Cinemas is requiring all patrons to wear face masks. In an updated policy made public Friday on the chain’s website, R…deadline.com
I have to imagine that you'd be able to get a refund. Even if it's not official policy, I'm sure the people working there would rather refund you the money rather than risk starting a problem with an idiot who might be a potential maniac.What the theaters should do is give patrons the option to leave and get a refund if they spot people in their auditorium not wearing a mask.

Officials also reported 18 deaths in the past 24 hours, which is seven more than Sunday. The Public Health department has identified 85,942 positive cases of COVID-19 across all areas of L.A. County, and a total of 3,137 deaths.
“Today marks the third day in a week that we have reported 2,000 or more cases of COVID-19,” said Dr. Barbara Ferrer, the county’s director of public health. “And while some of the increases are due to test reporting issues, it is clear that much of the increase represents more community transmission.”
