GOVERNMENT'S OPEN-AIR CINEMA FLOUTS SOCIAL DISTANCING RULES

Pin It

Copia-di-TASSI-INTERESSE-NEGATIVIThe government’s open-air cinema has come under fire for the second time since its launch – this time for flouting social distancing rules. 

Cinema City kicks off on Thursday evening with a showing of the blockbuster Jurassic World, but pictures of the set up shows seats arranged close to each other.

According to the “Obligatory Conditions and Guidelines for Drive-in cinemas, Outdoor Cinemas, Outdoor Theatres” published by the Health Ministry, audiences at open-air cinemas must sit two metres apart.

Rows of deckchairs and plastic chairs have been laid out at Ġnien Laparelli, more commonly known as the Valletta Ditch, in preparation for the event.

The health authorities’ guidelines state that in the case of movable seating that can be spaced out as necessary, which is what the Agency is using, this should be laid out in such a way as “to respect the 2m distancing requirement”.
