“It is impossible to predict at the moment when cinemas in Serbia will reopen,” said yesterday Igor Stanković, director of Belgrade’s Kombank Dvorana and the film distribution company Megakom Film.
He added that it is certain that cinemas will remain closed in July.
“I don’t know when we will open cinemas again. In California, not only has the opening of cinemas been postponed, but also bars have been closed in nine counties. It will probably happen here too,” says Stankovic.
Filmmakers expected high-budget films like Christopher Nolan’s “Tenet” and Niki Caro’s “Mulan” to bring audiences back to the cinema after three months, but their distribution was postponed until August 12 and 24 respectively.

“The first dates are mid-August, and I don’t see any reason to open the cinemas earlier,” Stanković said.
For the time being, film fans in Belgrade can go to a drive-in cinema near Ada Ciganlija.
“For now it is impossible to do otherwise. There is still nothing to indicate that we are at the end of the tunnel,” Stankovic concluded.
