It was difficult to get any movie licenses approved – Disney would approve no licenses until the end of August at first! This is what we were initially told: As commercial theatres slowly begin to reopen across the country, all new pop-up drive-in situations (new for 2020) must cease operations if within the vicinity (40km) of an active and open commercial theatre or drive-in.  This applies to all situations and titles.  This means that movie license bookings confirmed for future dates may be cancelled if they occur after said commercial theatre or drive-in are open.
