Film Theaters To Remain Closed for One More Month

Government's Crucial Meeting To Decide About Re-Opening of Theaters

Government of India had announced guidelines for ‘Unlock 4’ which will be in force till September 30th. All activities shall be permitted outside containment zones except for Cinema halls, swimming pools, entertainment parks, theatres (excluding open-air theatre) and similar places.

International air travel of passengers is also not allowed except as permitted by MHA. This means the theaters across the country will remain closed for one more month. It has to be seen if the theaters will be allowed to Function at least from October onwards as a part of Unlock 5.

Even though the Government had allowed the theaters to function, the Single Screen Theaters are unlikely to open. Suresh Babu who owns around 450 theaters in both the Telugu States already announced that his theaters will remain closed even if the Government allows the theaters to open.
