Palace Amusement, the owners and operators of Palace cinemas, have temporarily closed operations islandwide.

Like the other cinemas, Palace Multiplex will also be closed.

The company said that the closure would begin on Saturday, March 14, and will continue until further notice as per recommendations coming from the Government discouraging public gatherings which can increase the risk of spreading coronavirus.

“In light of the COVID-19 and the recommendations issued by the Prime Minister, we are taking all precautionary measures to ensure the safety of our valued patrons, our staff and wider community,” Palace said in a Twitter post on Saturday afternoon.

Palace further stated that it looks forward to welcoming patrons when things have improved in the country.
