Please remember to maintain distance before, during and after the movie. Follow the directional signs and the reminders posted throughout the theatre for guidance.

The sale of movie tickets, food and beverages will be made online (or with the help of an app) to ensure contactless purchase and delivery. This is done to encourage contactless and paperless payments. Customers should try and minimize cash transactions and encourage credit cards or contactless payment methods. Theaters will eliminate communal food and condiments that require shared serving utensils or equipment. The audience is  advised to avoid movement during the intervals. Longer time will be given during intermission for the viewers to settle safely, hence individuals should consciously maintain distance and avoid overcrowding in any particular area.                                       

5. Hygiene comes first
