Under the current SOP, cinemas are allowed to operate from 8am to 10pm with up to 50 per cent seating capacity in the screening halls. Wearing face masks is still required. To ensure social distancing, operators must ensure a minimum one-metre gap between customers and monitor for SOP compliance. All employees at the cinema must be fully vaccinated and pass a Covid-19 screening test.

Only fully vaccinated individuals are allowed to enter the cinema and you are required to show proof of full vaccination via the MySejahtera app. Customers below 18 years of age are not allowed to enter the screening halls. A person with a two-dose vaccine is only considered fully vaccinated 14 days after receiving the second shot. For individuals with a single-shot vaccine, you’re counted as fully vaccinated 28 days after getting the injection. Individuals or customers with a high-risk status in MySejahtera are not allowed to enter the premises.
