As the fifth wave of the pandemic grew severe, the government early this year tightened social distancing and closed entertainment venues like cinemas. Two days ago (Thursday) as the social distancing restrictions were eased, cinemas finally opened again. Many films were released. Because it was not a public holiday, people had to go to work and school. With the 50% capacity limit on cinemas, the single day box office was average. FANTASTIC BEAST: THE SECRETS OF DUMBLEDORE performed the best with HK$ 1.79 million. In second place MOONFALL made HK$ 400,000. In third was the animated film SING 2 with HK$ 110,000. The Louis Koo Tin Lok, Julian Cheung Chi Lam, Jessica Hester Hsuan and others starred Hong Kong film G STORM (G FUNG BO) only made HK 14,000. The return engagement of ANITA made HK$ 12,000.
