Cinemas to open tomorrow, screening from Wednesday

The screening of Daniel Craig’s last James Bond movie No Time to Die and Venom: Let There Be Carnage, starring Tom Hardy, from Wednesday onwards will mark the reopening of cinemas across the State after remaining shut following the second wave of the pandemic in April.

The theatres will reopen on Monday as decided at the meeting of film trade bodies with Saji Cherian, Minister for Cinema, on Friday. “The screening will start from Wednesday, as we need at least two days of time for the preparatory works,” said K.
