Film Theatres To Be Shut Down From April 21

The Telangana Theatre Owners Association has announced that film theatres and multiplexes located across the state will be closed from April 21 till May 1.
Hyderabad | 20th April 2021
After much unhappiness about the Telangana government's call to allow film theatres and multiplexes to remain open in the state through the ongoing pandemic, the government has finally issued directives to theatre owners barring them from holding any night shows till May 1 as part of its orders for the imposition of a night curfew in the state.

According to the orders, will have to close at 8 pm every day for the next 10 days. During the daytime, too, they will have to adhere to strict Covid-19 safety norms.

Many other measures, including the sanitisation of shared spaces after every show and maintaining the temperatures of halls between 24 and Celsius, will also have to be taken by the theatres.

Theatre management bodies have also been told that those violating the safety protocols will be prosecuted under Sections 51 to 60 of the Disaster Management Act (2005) and Section 188 of the IPC.

Meanwhile, the Theatre Owners Association has announced that film theatres and multiplexes located across the state will be closed from April 21 till May 1.

The body has cited the rapid spread of Covid-19 across the state and in the GHMC area over the past three weeks as its reason for taking the decision.

As a result of the pandemic, many big-budget films, including Sekhar Kammula's newest flick, Love Story and Rana Daggubati and Sai Pallavi's Virata Parvam, have been forced to postpone their much-awaited releases.

After the Telangana High Court flayed the government for its "indifferent attitude" towards imposing restrictions needed to stop the spread of the pandemic, it is expected that the government will take decisions to restrict the number of people allowed to gather for functions like funerals ad marriages in a day or two.
