AP Theatre Industry heading for a Crisis

0

Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy issued an ultimatum about the ticket prices and a new GO was released overnight. Along with the film fraternity, the common man was surprised with new ticket pricing in the state. The film industry tried hard to get the GO revised but it did not happen. The theatres in Telangana are reopened with 100 percent occupancy, flexible ticket pricing and parking charges are reintroduced for single screens. But in Andhra Pradesh, selected theatres are reopened with 50 percent occupancy. As there is a night curfew imposed, there is only permission to screen three shows in a day.

The footfalls on day one are pathetic. Thimmarasu received a positive response and the film picked up by evening shows. Ishq received poor response and the collections dropped down badly. AP theatre industry is currently running in huge crisis and it’s time for the government to stand as support before most of the single screens get converted into function halls and warehouses. With the night curfew extended in AP, there would be no prominent releases in August. For now, the film industry has to wait for more time to screen renowned films.

AP Government grants permission to reopen Theatres

0

The government of Telangana lifted the restrictions in June and all the businesses are completely asked to operate. The theatres across the state are granted 100 percent occupancy but they are yet to reopen as there are no releases announced. Also, the government of Telangana is yet to waive off the power charges that are promised after the first wave of coronavirus. Now the government of Andhra Pradesh granted permission to reopen the theatres. All the theatres in Andhra Pradesh can operate with 50 percent occupancy from July 8th in AP.

But the theatres will get reopened only after the notable films will announce their release dates. The government of AP is also yet to revise the GO of ticket prices. Most of the exhibitors are not ready to reopen their screens until the GO is revised. If the issues in the Telugu states are resolved, there would be releases expected from August.

Telangana government grants permission to reopen theatres

1

Telangana is the first state to lift the lockdown completely. There would be no restrictions starting from tomorrow in the state. The government even granted permission to reopen the theatres but the fresh guidelines about the occupancy is yet to be announced. The people across the state are asked to wear facemasks and maintain social distancing when they are in public places. Though the theatres would be allowed to reopen now, there would be no notable or major releases for a month.

Tollywood filmmakers and actors are waiting for the issues in Andhra Pradesh to get resolved to announce the release dates. The GO of ticket prices should be revised which would turn out to be a relief for Telugu cinema. Some of the theatres in Telangana may screen recently released films initially soon.
