When the big screen cinemas are still closed, ‘private cinemas’ are the choice of people to treat missing watching movies.
Yohanes Mustamu (42), the owner of the mini cinema Clapper Jakarta, said that in the midst of a pandemic, his turnover could even reach IDR 10 million per month.
This is obtained from the arrival of visitors who rent 4-6 theaters per day.
Even so, it cannot be denied that his business was also affected by Corona.
In addition to the 3 months of having to close during large-scale social restrictions (PSBB), his income fell by more than 50% due to fewer visitors.
The same thing was said by Dante, as a representative of Subtitles mini cinema.
He admitted that at the beginning of the pandemic, his income had dropped by 70%.
However, this loss can be reduced here because it is able to convince visitors by implementing strict health protocols.
