According to Motion Picture Association, 12 major theaters are closed in the earthquake affected area. Some of the closed theaters are undergoing repairs after earthquake damages and others are closed because of the lack of the movie to screen in them. As the earthquake aftershocks haven’t stopped even after a month of the devastating earthquake, viewers are skeptical in going to theaters to watch the movies.
A video report:
According to Gopal Kayastha, Kalanki theater is in the verge of collapse, Asta Narayan and Ganga are also being renovated after earthquake. Other closed theaters include a multiplex in Bagbazar, Subhakamana and Mayur theaters in Banepal, Barahi and Kamalbinayak theaters in Bhaktapur, Hira Ratna, Asta Narayan, Ganga and Kalanki theaters in Kathmandu.
