India is slowly coming out of lockdown. The things which have been closed for months, have been opened one by one under the unlock process, but still many sectors are looking for the permission of the government. One of these sectors is entertainment. Theaters, which are buzzing with audiences every Friday, have been closed for nearly 25 weeks. However, the Unlock 4 guidelines are expected to open theaters in October. If this happens, this news will prove to be good news for cine lovers and theater people.
Theater owners are also constantly appealing to the government to start theaters. In addition, the Multiplex Association of India has already sent the Center to the Center by creating SOP based on the global standard so that theaters can be opened at the earliest.
In the Corona era we have to take care of entertainment as well as precautions and safety. Rajesh Kumar, the head of the Department of Microbiology at Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar University in Lucknow and Professor Rajesh Kumar, does not consider it safe to watch the film in the theater.
How to take care of basic safety?
Masks, sanitizers and distancing required
Why the mask inside the theater?
How safe is a movie theater with family?
What precautions should be taken in the bathroom?
Seat cleaning may be a good solution
According to the CDC, the surface may not be the main source of coronavirus outbreaks. However, this dose depends on how much virus a person needs to get sick. If possible, clean the seat surface with alcohol wipes included in the kit. Theater companies abroad are also cleaning up between movie shows.
Right choice of theater and show
If you have made up your mind to watch a movie in the theater itself, then choose such cinema hall and show time when the crowd is less. In such a situation, you will at least come in contact with others. Choose a large movie theater so that you can easily follow social distancing while watching a movie.
Online ticket booking
CEOs of multiplex companies say that they have prepared for paperless tickets, distance between seats, long breaks and sanitizing between shows. Buy tickets with the help of online apps to avoid ticket lines and congestion. Maybe you get a great offer.
SOPs include masks, thermal scanning, sanitizers as well as lobby-railings and regular cleaning of doors. Also, the two screen shows will not start simultaneously. This will not create congestion in multiplexes and social distancing will be followed.
Is eating something right while watching a movie?
Professor Kumar says that if food is hot then it is safe, but if it is cold and there is dirt around, then avoid it. Wash your hands with soap instead of sanitizer before eating food, because many times traces are kept even after cleaning hands with sanitizer. Many poor quality sanitizers are also available in the market, whose chemicals can harm you.
