After closing its doors on March 18th due to the Movement Control Order, Malaysian cinemas were finally allowed to operate again from the 1st of July. Rejoice! The downside is, strict physical distancing must be maintained at all times in theatres, which means patrons aren’t allowed to sit beside one another, even if they’re your family, friends or loved ones that live together in the same house. This SOP is understandable, as Malaysia continues its fight with the COVID-19 pandemic, but there’s no denying that it will make the theatrical experience slightly less fun.
However, Malaysians could be treated to an entirely new theatrical experience altogether. According to Rojak Daily, M-Junction, in collaboration with TwoSpicy Entertainment Live (Dinner in the Sky, Plane in the City) will be launching a drive-in cinema.
