    Re: Open/opened

    Yes. They mean slightly different things but the word is the same.

    The cinema is now open = The cinema is now available for use by the public.
    The door is now open = The door is now in the open position.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
