The Malaysian Association of Film Exhibitors (MAFE) announced today, 6 April, that cinemas nationwide will remain close until end-April in view of the COVID-19 pandemic

Golden Screen Cinemas Sdn Bhd, Berjaya-GSC Sdn Bhd, TGV Cinemas Sdn Bhd, MM2 Screen Management Sdn Bhd (mmCineplexes), and Lotus Five Star Cinemas (M) Sdn Bhd are all participating members in MAFE's extended closure. 

"While we intend to reopen the cinemas as soon as circumstances allow, we believe it is important that we put the nation’s interests, as well as our customers’ and employees’ health and well-being first," MAFE said in a statement, as quoted by New Straits Times.

MAFE's decision is in line with the efforts of other film exhibitors across ASEAN countries to prevent mass gatherings in hopes of curbing the spread of the coronavirus

This includes exhibitors in Thailand, Indonesia, Cambodia, the Philippines, Vietnam, Myanmar, and Singapore.

Also, due to the pandemic, there will be fewer movies to be screened as most local and international distributors have postponed their releases.

Until then, stay safe and watch movies from the comfort of your own home!
