Marketing Manager and Director of Palace Amusement Limited, Melanie Graham, says she’s pleased the cinema sector is re-opening having lost over 300-million dollars due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Local Government Minister, Desmond McKenzie, announced Wednesday the government will be allowing a conditional 14-day reopening of cinemas, theatres and play houses as of this Sunday.
Ms Graham says stakeholders have been agitating for a resumption.
She says her company has lost 300-million dollars this year in gross earnings alone.
She says the theatres will re-open on Wednesday with their popular half off deal.
And Ms Graham says she’s confident that patrons tired of staying at home will come out.
