Covid-19: All Malaysian cinemas to shut down until further notice
KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 30 — Cinema operators in Malaysia have come to the decision to temporarily suspend operations at all their cinemas nationwide.

The Malaysian Association of Film Exhibitors (MAFE) announced it is collectively suspending operations, but will continue to monitor the Covid-19 situation and react accordingly as market conditions improve.

MAFE vice-president Cheah Chun Wai said the primary reason for the closures is the recent conditional movement control order (CMCO) implemented in several states, as well as a lack of new movies released in the short term.

“Ordinarily these new movies are essential to attract moviegoers back to the cinemas,” he said in a statement.
