Wonder Woman 1984

Fast forward to the 1980s as Wonder Woman’s next big screen adventure finds her facing two all-new foes: Max Lord and The Cheetah. With director Patty Jenkins back at the helm and Gal Gadot returning in the title role, “Wonder Woman 1984” is Warner Bros. Pictures’ follow up to the DC Super Hero’s first outing, 2017’s record-breaking “Wonder Woman,” which took in $822 million at the worldwide box office. The film also stars Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, Kristen Wiig as The Cheetah, Pedro Pascal as Max Lord, Robin Wright as Antiope, and Connie Nielsen as Hippolyta.

In Massachusetts, the COVID-19 guidance indicates movie theaters can open with no more than 50 people per individual theater.

Indoor movie theaters must monitor customer entries and exits and limit occupancy at all times to:

  • 40% of each individual theater or screening room’s maximum permitted occupancy as documented in its occupancy permit on record with the municipal building department or other municipal record holder and never more than 50 persons in a single enclosed, indoor space
  • Venues for which no permitted occupancy limitation is on record may allow up to 8 persons per 1,000 square feet of accessible space, and never more than 50 persons in a single enclosed, indoor space
