Over 450 cinema theatres remain closed on 2nd day
As part of Sakala Janula Samme, cinema theaters in Telangana closed on September 14 and 15 expressing solidarity to the ongoing general strike.
The Telangana Film Chamber of Commerce gave a call to film distributors and exhibitors to close film theaters demanding formation of a separate Telangana.
About 450 cinema theaters including multiplexes across the region have been closed voluntarily. “It was a voluntary decision to close cinema theaters as an act of solidarity. We are happy to express our willingness to be part of the movement in a different way despite suffering losses,” said M Vijayender Reddy, president, TFCC.
