As Tamil Nadu legislative assembly elections will be happening tomorrow (May 16), all morning and noon shows will be cancelled throughout all the theaters in the state.
If people find any theater screening films, they can file a complaint to the chief electoral officer or district collector. The Tamil Nadu Theater Owners’ Association has already sent a circular to its members that they shouldn’t screen any shows till 5’o clock in the evening.
After 5PM, theaters are free to screen films in their premises. Apparently May 16th is a holiday in Tamil Nadu and Election Commission wants everyone to register their vote.
