Movie distributor Ster-Kinekor on Thursday announced measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 within its theatres.

“The Executive Committee and leadership team are encouraging social distancing inside the cinema, by ensuring that two seats be left empty between each booked seat,” it added

Normal shows will otherwise resume.
