PVR Cinemas is all set to restart operations from today in Dehradun after a gap of three months with 100 per cent vaccinated staff.
In order to welcome the audience in a safe environment, PVR has made all the preparations to take necessary precautions against Covid-19 contagion. The manager of PVR cinemas in Dehradun, Manoj Bisht, said that the staff will follow strict hygiene protocols while ensuring minimal human contact across all touch points. He said every second seat will be left unoccupied in the auditoriums to ensure physical distance among the movie audience.
“Every food and beverage will go through UV sterilisation process for extra safety from germs. The facility to serve the food inside the auditoriums has also been restricted to minimise the risk of contagion from staff,” he said. Bisht informed that the ticket system is also made completely paperless to minimise the point of contact of staff with the audience. PVR has planned to run movies in only two auditoriums in the initial phase and will operate the others with Bollywood, Hollywood and regional movies in upcoming weeks, informed Bisht.
Besides this, PVR has also introduced a promotional offer to encourage those who have got vaccinated against Covid-19. “A vaccinated customer will get one ticket free on buying two tickets besides getting a food and beverage combo free on purchasing two combos. We have fully vaccinated staff and we want to promote vaccination drive among the audience too,” he added.
