Regarding opening of cinema halls and multiplexes

Many of you participated in the LocalCircles survey few weeks back on the re-opening of multiplex/cinema halls and willingness to go and below are the findings.

Cinema Halls and Multiplex Survey

The reality is exactly this as well and just a hand full of people are visiting cinema halls in each show putting in jeopardy their entire businesses model because now they have added fixed and variable costs.

Going to theaters to watch a movie is unsafe regardless of what the multiplex/cinema hall owners claim. Do share the above link with all your friends and family members and social media contacts for its better for both people are owners of these facilities to just wait it out rather than operate at this time. more

Keeping the erratic way of pandemic rising/dropping it is not at all advisable to open the Cinema Halls just because some one is loosing money in their venture. We have to be careful and and have patience in opening the Halls. Time is not ripe yet. more  
After TV, video, mobile etc., people have lost interest on normal Cinema Halls. However, multiplex has some demand as a part of luxury and it is not crowded, but little bit costly. When Religious places are still under restriction, there is no logic in opening Cinema Halls. more  
A very careful action plan is recommended. a phased approach may give better results. more  
I stopped watching movies in a theatre or a multiplex since 1995. more  
When everything else is open, it does not make sense in closing cinema halls. Like hotels if 50% people in hall are safer than in hotels as people do not face others while sitting. In Mumbai normally cinema halls are partly filled most of the time. It is also part of economy and many people depend on income from it. more
