Cinema halls/theatres/multiplex operators will be allowed to open with 50% capacity between 9 am and 8 pm only for guests who have got at least the first dose of a Covid vaccine.

The government also released guidelines for further relaxations such as opening of movie theatres, training centres, tourists’ movements, marriage ceremonies, indoor and outdoor games.
