Ghanaians were slowly catching on to the cinema culture and now we have had more than 1-year break since the COVID-19 pandemic hit.
There have been many calls for the cinemas to be opened especially when many other social gathering events and activities have resumed.
Going to the cinema was fast becoming a Ghanaian culture. Either friends hoping to hang out or two love birds who enjoy going to the movies for a date, this was really becoming a thing.
Now, there are indications that you can start planning your trips to the cinema again.
Though the cinemas are still not opened yet, the President gave a piece of somewhat positive news in his 25th COVID-19 update address last night.
While speaking on some of the restrictions that have been lifted he said “our ability, however, to congregate in closed spaces, like cinemas, theatres and nightclubs, remains restricted.”
“In a move towards the reopening of cinemas and theatres, Government has engaged cinema owners and operators on a set of protocols and guidelines that need to be put in place and implemented by all operators before the eventual re-opening,” he added.
This is indication that the government has told the owners of the cinemas what to do and if they agree to do that then the cinemas could be opened soon.
The president explained that in the coming weeks, the Ghana Health Service and the Ghana Tourism Authority will be announcing these protocols and mandatory modalities, and work with the operators on a set of directives that will ensure the health and safety of all patrons and staff in all the facilities involved.”
Though this was not the exact positive news about cinemas they were hoping for at least, this indicates that they are preparing to open them.
