Kolkata/IBNS: The West Bengal government has allowed the reopening of all kinds of shows including cinemas with maximum 50 participants from Oct 1.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee tweeted, "To return to normalcy, Jatras, Plays, OATs, Cinemas & all musical, dance, recital & magic shows shall be allowed to function with 50 participants or less from 1 Oct, subject to adherence to physical distancing norms, wearing of masks & compliance to precautionary protocols."

The cinemas and shows were stopped from running in the state even before the commencement of the nationwide anti-Covid-19 lockdown on Mar 25 midnight.

Earlier in its guidelines for Unlock 4, the central government had allowed the resumption of open-air theatres across the country in September.
