Abu Dhabi: Movie Theaters in the UAE are set to be lively again with the Media Regulatory Office of the Ministry of Culture and Youth allowing cinemas to operate at 100 percent capacity from 15th February 2022.
The decision which was revealed by National Emergency Crisis and Disasters Management Authority (NCEMA) awards each emirate with discretion to modify cinema capacity, easing or tightening procedures as they seem necessary.
The Executive Director of Media Regulatory Office emphasized the need to fully comply to the preventive measures adopted to curb the spread of the pandemic such as mandatory masks, restriction on large gatherings and sterilization drives throughout the country while vaccinations and supportive doses helped the spread greatly.
Dr. Al Nuaimi further added that the Authority will ensure that the precautionary procedures are fully adhered to for the health and safety of the community.
With the reduction of COVID-19 infections, the NCEMA has been gradually lifting several other COVID-19 restrictions on various events and activities in the country. The Authority will be easing restrictions placed on tourism, recreational facilities, shopping malls and public transport by mid-February, allowing them to operate to full capacity.
