Movie theatres can't be opened until December: Minister Saji Cherian
Thiruvananthapuram: Movie theatres in the state cannot be opened at least till December as there is a surge in Covid-19 cases here, said Saji Cheriyan, Minister for Culture.
“The rise in Covid-19 cases is concerning. Opening of theatres can be considered only when the TPR rate goes below eight percent. The surge in Covid-19 deaths has to be taken very seriously,” said Saji Cheriyan.
There are many movies, including big-budget ‘Marakkar’, awaiting theatre opening. Saji Cheriyan’s statement worries movie makers and fans alike.
