Theatres to open up their doors in Lucknow in line with covid protocols, today onwards

The first show will be screened on Thursday at 1:45 PM.

After almost 7 months of shuttered doors, theatres in the city are finally welcoming in cinephiles. The recommencement is in line with covid protocols and Unlock 5.0 guidelines which have been issued by the authorities. Multiplexes and single screens across the state will be back in action, with just two shows in the entire day and re-runs of previously released hits. Wearing masks inside the halls would be mandatory and the first show will be screened on Thursday at 1:45 PM.

Superhits to be on a rerun

Initially, the officials have agreed on screening only two shows, slated at 1:45 PM and 5:45 PM with 50% seating capacity. The time in-between the two movies will be invested in sanitising the movie halls and every second seat will be fenced off to maintain social distancing. The movie hall authorities are also required to submit the corona test reports of their employees to the district administration along with implementing this seating arrangement. It has also become compulsory for the big screens to provide provisions for contactless sanitiser dispenser and hand washing facilities and only asymptomatic citizens will be allowed to enter. At the point of entry, thermal screening of individuals will be conducted as well.

Movie halls like Inox at Riverside Mall, Novelty Talkies in Aliganj, PVR Cinema in Phoenix Mall, Inox Cinema in Umrao Mall, Inox at Crown Mall in Faizabad Road, will be open for the audience. Although there are no new releases scheduled, movies like Malang, Tanahji, Shubh Mangal Zyada Savdhaan and Thappad will be up on the screens. Advanced booking of a ticket isn't permitted so it will have be purchased at the ticket counter of the movie hall.
