Iran reopens Film Museum after 3 months closure

Iran reopens Film Museum after some 3 months of closure due to coronavirus lockdown.

Iran has reopened the Film Museum some three months of closure due to the coronavirus lockdown.

Obtaining the permission from the Coronavirus Combat and Prevention Headquarters, the museum's PR office announced that it has resumed the activities.

The museum has asked visitors to wear face masks and gloves during the coronavirus pandemic.

The Cinema Organization of Iran last week announced reopening of the movie theaters in the so-called white alert regions with no coronavirus hospitalizations in the past two weeks.

The cinemagoers were also told to observe social distancing and preventing measures, while the employees were asked to wear face masks and plastic gloves.

Fever test before entering the movie theaters, regular disinfection of the halls and public restrooms, as well as the screening of a video on how to protect against the coronavirus before the feature film are also among the guidelines required by the Coronavirus Combat and Prevention Headquarters.

In a letter earlier sent to President Hassan Rouhani, the Association of Iranian Theater Owners asked to lift the coronavirus restriction on movie theaters, calling for reopening of the halls across the country based on the health protocols during the pandemic.

In addition, the Cinema Organization of Iran has recently announced that Iranian cineastes can resume their activities in the near future.
