The Ministry of Information and Broadcasting announced on Saturday night that the theaters would be allowed to run at full capacity from 1 February, after the Home Ministry announced a few days later that theaters across India could increase occupancy from the current 50%.
On Saturday night, the I&B Ministry released Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs), which are to be followed with new guidelines. While the Center has allowed theaters to operate at full capacity, states and UTs may propose additional measures as per the assessment. Common SOPs include that people maintain social distance at any point, wearing masks and theaters must be sanitizers at entry and exit points. Thermal screening of every visitor and staff is also mandatory.
Listeners may be encouraged to avoid movement during the interval. Longer intervals can be used to allow spectators sitting in separate rows of the auditorium to move in a staggered manner. Staggered show times will be followed for multiple screens to avoid congestion. Among all other precautionary measures, the temperature setting of all air conditioning equipment should be in the range of 24–30 ° C.
These new sets of guidelines will bring relief for theater owners and exhibitors and filmmakers, who have long been waiting to release their films in theaters. Earlier this month, the Tamil Movie Master became the first major Indian film to hit theaters. Despite a 50% capacity in theaters, the film performed exceptionally at the box office.
