Cinema Hall

JAKARTA - Parents are allowed to bring children under 12 years old to the cinema, specifically for cities in Java and Bali that are included in the implementation of community activity restrictions (PPKM) levels 1 and 2.

Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs and Investment Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan said the capacity of cinemas for districts/cities in Java and Bali, which are already in levels 1 and 2, could be increased to 70%. Even so, Luhut emphasized that this easing was accompanied by health protocols and strict conditions that must be complied with.

Such as the mandatory use of the Care Protect application to conduct initial screening and the mandatory assistance for children under 12 years of age by parents. Some places that have entered the implementation of PPKM level 1 and 2 are Jakarta, Bogor, Depok, Tangerang, Bekasi, Bandung, Semarang, Yogyakarta, Malang, Surabaya, Denpasar, and Aceh.

The director of the NUSSA film, Bony Wirasmono, is happy that finally parents can invite and accompany their children to watch movies in the cinema with a safe and comfortable feeling.

“Of course it feels good, the feeling of longing to enjoy the experience of watching at the cinema has been cured. Parents can now accompany their children to witness the exciting adventures of Nussa and Rarra. But don't forget, health protocols must still be maintained while in the cinema, yes," said Bony when contacted on Thursday, October 21.

Here are 6 tips for safe watching with children at the cinema.

1. Eat Full Before going to the Cinema

Before going to the cinema, make sure your child is full. When children are full, they will not ask for food so there is no need to remove the mask while watching a movie in the cinema.

2. Use a Mask

Using a mask is something that must be used anywhere, including when in the cinema. This method is effective in minimizing the spread of viruses caused by droplets. Avoid removing the mask while in the studio.

3. Book Tickets in Advance

To avoid running out of tickets, take advantage of the cinema ticket booking application to book tickets in advance. Don't take your child to the cinema, but run out of tickets.

4. Use Digital Payments

With the number of digital payments or e-Wallets that offer convenience in transactions, the cinema has set rules that will only accept digital payments. The regulation is to minimize physical touch between visitors and employees.

5. Bring hand sanitizer

Always carry hand sanitizer wherever you go. Even though the cinema has prepared hand sanitizer and a hand washing place. But there's nothing wrong with bringing hand sanitizer to make it more hygienic.

6. Obey the rules of social distancing

Cinemas apply social distancing between audiences by imposing social distance seating. Obey the distance that has been set by the cinema studio.

Always try to keep your distance while in the studio. It's better to avoid busy hours, choose quiet hours and as much as possible don't go into a full studio.
