The Sindh government has issued a notification lifting the lockdown restrictions across the province. Restrictions on cinemas, theaters, hotels and restaurants have also been lifted. And after 5 month-long closure due to lockdown, Karachi’s oldest theatre “Capri Cinema” is now finally screening movies once more.
The decision has been taken in light of discussions at the NCOC and the National Coordination Committee (NCC), which agreed “to allow economic activities to lessen the economic burden on the population to the maximum possible extent while following precautionary measures”.
However, wedding halls and schools will remain closed until September 15. On August 14, Capri Cinema started its operations.
The cinema will be following a strict guideline of SOPs and no one will be allowed to enter without a proper mask.
It screened Hollywood star Vin Diesel’s movie “Bloodshot” which was available on three different shows.
Ever since the lockdown has been lifted, the city is livening up with activity across town picking up again.
Wedding Halls begin operations:
In light of this decision, wedding halls and venues also have started taking bookings for events across Karachi.
Recreational Activity livens up:
KMC Director Kunwar Ayub announced that all the recreational parks and Karachi Zoo will be opening for all public. The locations will include Karachi Zoo, Safari Park and the Korangi-Landhi Zoo.
Pakistan went into lockdown on March 23 and all activity halted across the country.
