Nationwide cinemas to remain closed from today

Cinemas all over Bangladesh are going into lockdown mode from today (March 18) to April 2 amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Bangladesh Film Producers-Distributors Association President Khorshed Alam Khosru announced on Monday.


 
While asked about the ongoing crisis and possibilities of a nationwide shutting down of the cinema halls, Khosru told UNB that the association has decided to close all the halls until April 2.

“As the virus passes from human to human in close proximity, people inside crowded cinema halls are at a higher risk to be contaminated with the virus, so we decided not to continue the shows in any of the halls including the cineplexes from March 18 to April 2,” Khosru told UNB.

If the crisis continues, the longevity of the decision can get extended until the situation gets normal – he further added.
