Rupali, Rangdhanu, Moonlight, Raj Mahal, Samrat, Light House, Feroze Mahal, Suruj Mahal, Asha, Mashar and Hangsho cinema halls have been closed in the last era. However, Banani cinema hall in Fatullah-Panchabati Bsik area is open, but it is running at a loss.
According to the officials of cinema halls in Narayanganj, even after the release of multiple films this Eid, if the audience does not return as before, then the remaining halls will be closed soon.
