Settled on a hill-top, over-looking the beautiful Indonesian city of Bandung, Indonesia Offers ‘Cinema Under The Stars’ Amid Pandemic.

Lines of teepee tents are set-up each evening, on a lawn, in the front of a large screen. This cinema opened two months ago. Due to all this corona situation, when people aren’t able to go and watch movies in actual cinemas, this is something that anyone would love. Keeping people entertained, along with maintaining proper social distancing.

“We started this business during the pandemic, that’s why we were brainstorming about how to attract visitors as people have a thirst for entertainment in times like these,” said Ilham Fahri Suhada, one of the organizers.

The ‘Cinema under the stars’ offers pillows, blankets, and snacks too, along with properly disinfecting the tents and providing hand-sanitizers too.

The public sits at the entrance of the tents with small tables in front of them with food and drinks, all lit up by candlelight.

The cost for each tent is 2,15,000 rupiah – $15.25 or PKR 2,432 – per film.

With more than 530,000 infections and 16,000 deaths, Indonesia has the highest number of coronavirus cases and fatalities in Southeast Asia.

Unlike many neighbors, the world’s fourth most populous country with 270 million people has not had national lockdowns but has instead imposed localized social restrictions.

While tents may not provide much additional protection from the virus, film-goers seem content with the setup.

“I don’t have to worry – about Covid-19 – here because they carry out proper health protocols,” said Juliatun Hasanah, 21.
