Assuming that they do home release like you describe, then fewer screens (or rather, the same number of screens, but with a reduced schedule of showings per screen)."Normal theatrical run" meaning back on some screens or back on 4000+?
I can see they might put it back out on limited screens - like maybe 1000 - but it'd be insane for them to try to restart it like it's a true new release when it's already been available for home viewing...
The point is that there are likely to be a fairly large number of people who want to see the film on the big screen. Even if that's not the same number they would have had for a "completely unreleased" film, they should be able to make money catering to the people who are willing to pay for big screen viewings.
It's just a simple matter of matching supply to demand.
