Cinema halls to reopen from Oct 16

The Ministry of Information has given permission to reopen cinema halls across the country from October 16 maintaining the health guidelines of Covid-19.

The cinema halls will have to operate with only half the audience capacity, maintain safety rules and social distancing rules to prevent coronavirus infection. 

Earlier, in a meeting with representatives of the film industry Information Minister Dr. Hasan Mahmud said he would discuss with the Prime Minister about reopening cinema halls from October 16. 

After the pandemic situation worsened in Bangladesh, all cinema halls were closed down from March 18 like other entertainment centers. The shooting of films and TV dramas has also resumed after being closed for a few months. Although the exhibition of Mancha Natak is resumed yet, it is scheduled to restart from October 23.
