Cinemas in Shanghai reopened on Monday morning after the China Film Administration lifted restrictions that were introduced in late January to curb the spread of COVID-19.

Tian Shan Cinema at the Hongqiao Art Center, one of the most historic cinemas in the city with 40 years of history, started preparations to receive its first batch of customers as early as 8:30 am on Monday.

The first movie that the cinema screened was "A First Fairwell" at 9:50 am. The movie is a story about familial ties told from the perspective of three ethnic Uygur children.
