Movie releases, SOPs and everything you need to know

Everything you need to know about the reopening of theaters today

The red carpet is ready, popcorn is being prepared and the cinemas are waiting for your presence after 18 whole months of the pandemic! When Covid-19 hit the world, it seemed almost impossible to get back to one of our favorite leisure activities – watching movies at the cinema. While OTT has been adequate so far, the big screens are back and we can’t wait.

Excitement ran through the roof when the Maharashtra government finally decided to reopen the theaters. It escalated when all our favorite movies got release dates and now we’ve finally reached a point where the road to the cinema isn’t too far.

Maharashtra’s deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar has already kicked off the process by ringing the symbolic starting bell at the Balgandharva Rangmandir Theater. No matter how ecstatic you are, there are definitely a few rules that can’t be broken, even if movie theaters are opening all over the state.

According to news portal YEARS, Ajith Pawar revealed that theater owners had demanded a capacity of 100 percent, but the government has decided to reopen the halls at only 50 percent. If you’re worried about not getting movie tickets, don’t worry. He said the rule only applies until Diwali for now. If the situation remains under control after Diwali, the capacity will be increased.

Movie buffs can also enjoy the news that Bell Botton will be one of the first releases on the big screen in Maharashtra. The Akshay Kumar starrer had received a positive response from the film fraternity for their decision to delay the release until the cinemas reopen and the film itself has been praised by many.

The government has also released a detailed SOP on the reopening of cinemas, auditoriums and stage theatres. In addition to the usual social distancing and Covid-19 protocols, there are a few new restrictions that moviegoers will have to adhere to.

According to PTIAShowtimes for all cinemas will have to be staggered and only packaged food and drinks may be sold. These listed foods are not allowed to be brought into the screening rooms, and theaters that fall into the containment zones will still remain closed.

In addition to requiring masks, people wishing to enter the theaters must be fully vaccinated or their health status must be displayed on the Aarogya Setu app as safe. A lot of shopping centers where cinema halls are located require a full vaccination certificate, therefore it is better to confirm the Covid-19 protocol of these places in advance.

For the safety of people, a thermal check-up is mandatory at the entrance and the air conditioning in cinemas is set to temperatures between 24 and 30 degrees Celsius and humidity between 40 and 70 percent.

Since you’re looking forward to booking your first movie ticket in almost two months, make sure you stay safe and follow all protocols!
