Taipei, April 25 (CNA) With the movie theater industry falling victim to the COVID-19 coronavirus that has kept many consumers at home amid fear of infection, two more cinemas in Taiwan have announced that they will close temporarily from next week.

Changhua Cinemas and Taiwan Cinemas in Changhua City, two of the only three movie theaters in Changhua County, announced that they will suspend operations starting from April 27 until the pandemic eases.

The announcements from the two theaters came after Taipei's Dynasty Theater, which said Thursday that it will close for three months from May 4 due to the virus, and Tainan's Madou Cinema, which announced Friday that it will close for two months from April 27.
