Not anymore then a theater for collage students.
They can definitely enforce it like they've been doing all too well.
Have you ever seen a movie theater? It's dark and quiet and strangers are focusing on watching a movie. It's easy to block off seats to maintain distance and there is zero chance of large scale mingling.

Not sure where college students come into the story.

The shuls openly admit (see a few posts up) that they don't care what the people/government say, so it would take absurd resources for the government to enforce a distance requirement.

While people perhaps don't speak during the movie before and after why shouldn't they? They specifically opened up the theaters and pools so kids should have what to do during their march break. They are spending their time discussing whether they should allow pop corn in the theaters!

I'm share their are plenty of shuls with theater like spacing that can and are fully willing to follow the rules albeit they can have a minyan.
Isn't there a limit on how much benefit of the doubt can be given?!

The layout isn’t at all conducive for mingling...

And how is the government supposed to identify them?

It isn’t benefit of the doubt, there is no remote similarly between theaters and Shuls and churches unless somebody is desperate to pretend they’re equal.

Can someone possibly explain me a logical reason why Montreal has opened the movie theaters for an occupancy of up to 250 people?!

Do 90% of citizens agree to that as well??

And now NYC is opening theaters too:

If you're a U.S. Citizen living in Canada I would like to ask you to please send something like this to your local U.S. Consulate. Feel free to post a better version

Hi,

To whom this may concern,

I'm aware of the current travel restrictions for U.S. land borders whereas entry to the USA from Canadian and Mexican land border ports are only allowed for a narrow list of essential traveler exemptions.

In the case of geographic restriction orders from other countries such as United Kingdom, Brazil or Iran the spouses of U.S. Citizens were exempt.

As a U.S. Citizen with a non U.S. Citizen spouse the current restrictions pose a great burden and extreme difficulties pertaining to family reunification and/or when one spouse needs to travel.

As a U.S. Citizen living in Canada I hereby beg you to make our voices heard through the various departments and bureaucratic chambers so that this reasonable and vital exemption be added to the temporary travel restriction order.

I would also note that Canada in it's restriction orders for its own borders reasonably added exceptions for spouses and certain other family members, it is my hope that this can be reciprocated as soon as possible.
 
Thank you
