Theatre owners on the occupancy and the film strike

The current situation of Tamil cinema is pretty bad with no new releases since March 1 and also an indefinite strike going on. There has been no film-related work since March 16 and the entire situation seems grim. When we spoke to a few theatre owners regarding the occupancy and the current scenario with the theatres, they said:

GK Cinemas’ Ruban - “The first two weeks had less than 20 percent occupancy. The next two weeks, we had a worse situation and we closed down.”

SB Cinemas Poonamallee - “We have closed down due to poor occupancy. There has to be a quick solution to this problem!”

Gobi Krishna theatre (Theni) - “The occupancy is as bad as 10 percent with no new releases. Let us hope this ends soon and new films start releasing.”
