The movie theatres & Museums in Tamil Nadu are scheduled to reopen tomorrow (Tuesday, 10th November). Large auditoriums, conferences halls, and the zoological parks are also set to restart functioning after a long gap of 7 months.

Following the outbreak of the raging coronavirus pandemic and its wild spread all over the country, lockdown conditions were imposed throughout the country as a preventive measure against the spread of the raging coronavirus pandemic from 25th March. Subsequently, all movie theatres, amusement parks and other crowd gathering centres were closed.

Later, in subsequent phases of the lockdown announced with gradually increasing relaxations on various restrictions, maximum relaxations have been accorded till October.

The Chief Minister of the Tamil Nadu State, E. Palaniswamy released the State Government order for the reopening of the crowd-gathering places/resorts on 30th October. Accordingly, theatres with more than 1-screen as multiplex theatres and the theatres located in commercial complexes will all be reopening from Tuesday, 10th November.

Theatres have been strictly advised to operate at the audience level of only 50% in the movie-halls as a form of social distancing to be maintained.

Presently, the theatre-owners are engaged in completing all the required activities for the reopening. Various corona-preventive guidelines such as spraying germicides in the theatre, fixing stickers leaving alternative seats vacant, setting up indication marks in the ticket counters to adhere to the social distancing norm, etc., have been taken up and are in progress.
