There will be only two shows daily for a few days- morning show and evening show. Management took all precautions with safety and security pertaining to COVID-19 unlocks guidelines issued by Central government. There will be a 30 min gap between each show for sanitization and disinfection of theatres.
Theatre management is expecting raise in attendance as the days roll by. Entry is through thermal screening and tickets are booked online only. Alternate seats will be occupied with only 50% occupancy. Ticket prices have not been hiked despite alternate seats being left vacant.
