California movie theaters can begin opening later this week if they limit theater capacity to 25% or no more than 100 attendees.

State guidance released Monday adds movie theaters to a long list of entertainment and other businesses that can start reopening as the nation's most populous state relaxes its stay-at-home order.

The state recommends movie theaters implement reservation systems and limit seating and suggests moviegoers wear masks.

Film and TV production may also resume subject to labor agreements.
