Groups of up to five persons (friends and family) are allowed to book tickets to sit together. Cinemas must ensure there is a 1 metre distance between different groups.
Patrons are required to have masks on at all times except when they are consuming food and beverages inside the cinema hall. After eating/drinking, patrons should put masks back on. Cinema patrons are strongly encouraged to pre-order food and beverages online and collect the purchase on-site.
This is not required. However, patrons must check-in using TraceTogether/SafeEntry at the cinema entrance.
All malls are to comply with the prevailing occupancy limits for shopping malls.. While cinemas are not subject to such a limit, operators may wish to remind patrons to enter the mall early so as to avoid having to wait to enter the mall. There is no separate or special entry into the mall for cinema patrons – they must join the queue like every other mall visitor.
Cinemas will cater additional time for cleaning of halls after every screening. There will be increased cleaning and disinfection of high touch point areas e.g. service counters, toilets, ticketing machines etc.
Cinema patrons may buy tickets on-site. However, they are strongly encouraged to book their tickets online and in advance, to avoid queues at the cinemas. For on-site purchases, cashless or contactless payments are strongly encouraged.
IMDA’s Mandatory Safe Management Measures (SMM) for Cinemas will apply alongside with STB’s set of SMMs for events. STB’s SMM will be published at a later time.
