Chief Minister of West Bengal, Mamata Banerjee gave permission to open all cinema halls, multiplex across the state from 1st October. But there is a certain condition, all cinema-halls/multiplex will allow only 50 audiences in one show. This decision was taken due to COVID 19 pandemic.
Arijit Dutta, CEO of Priya Cinema hall said, " We want permission to allow at least 50% of the audience in the cinema hall. There are many multiplexes where seat number is just 50. It will create a massive problem". Many other cinema hall owners are also requesting CM Mamata Banerjee to consider their plea. Hall opening with 50 audience will not be beneficiary to them, they are already facing a lack of income due to lockdown.
