Sri Lanka National Film Corporation has announced that the Minister of Power and Energy Dullas Alahapperuma has agreed to grant a one-year grace period for cinema theatre owners to settle due electricity bills.
The decision was taken with the aim of providing relief for their financial difficulties caused by the closure of cinema theatres from March 2020 due to Covid-19 virus outbreak. Accordingly, this will provide an opportunity to settle the unpaid cinema theatre electricity bills concerning the period from March to December 2020 in 12 months (in 12 equal instalments).
Around 194 Cinema Theatres island-wide registered with the National Film Corporation are eligible for this electricity bill concession. The cinemas which were closed due to Covid 19 outbreak will be re-opened from today.
