PETALING JAYA: As uncertainty looms over the cinema industry amid the Covid-19 pandemic, GSC chief executive officer Koh Mei Lee is urging the government to allow cinemas to reopen as it has had no income since the movement control order (MCO) was imposed on March 18.

Pointing out that cinemas in Sabah were already allowed to operate with standard operating procedure (SOP) in place beginning June 17, Koh said the same should be applied to cinemas in the peninsula as well.
