The lower cinema attendance numbers in 2020 was due to multiple key factors: (1) The mandatory closure of cinemas from 27 March to 12 July 2020, which coincided with the nationwide circuit breaker in Singapore from 7 April to 1 June 2020; (2) Cinemas reopened with varying allowed capacity from 13 July 2020 onwards, in compliance with the prevailing cinema Safe Management Measures (https://www.imda.gov.sg/news-and-events/media-room/media-releases/advisories-on-covid-19-situation) of each phase post-circuit breaker; (3) COVID-19 had a sizeable impact on film production and releases, i.e., reduced the supply of films to cinemas for exhibition.
