While Angamaly Diaries is continuing it’s glorious run in all the release centres in Kerala, Girija theatre in Thrissur are trying to hold over the movie. They have closed the gates to the theatres during the show time leaving the audience disappointed.
It is conspicuous that the theatre owners are planning to hold over the movie for screening the Vishu releases. Actor/ filmmaker Roopesh Peethambaran has raised his voice against the theatre by posting a photo of closed gates from the theatre premises, in his official Facebook account. Along with the photo he has also written,
“Girija theater, open the gates for Angamaly Diaries!! If you are planning for a forced hold over situation then ‘we’ the Malayalam film industry will react!!!!
Share this information to the maximum”
Meanwhile, the theatre owners allege that there is a steady fall in the audience count. They allege that the makers are distributing tickets to migrant labourers in an attempt to not ensure the movie doesn’t become a hold over. The owners inform that they closed the gates as these labourers dirt the the complex and they cannot allow it as families also visit the theatres.
