With LFS' withdrawal from the screening, the entire Penang is deprived of Tanda Putera movie in cinemas, after Golden Screen Cinemas' (GSC) decision not to screen the show earlier.

Even TGV's sole cinema at 1st Avenue has removed the movie from its listing online.

Those who would like to catch the movie would have to travel an hour to Kulim, Kedah to catch the movie at the MBO Cineplex at Kulim Landmark Central, with two showtimes--12.30pm and 3pm.

It is also being screened at GSC's Amanjaya Mall, Sungai Petani, with three showtimes --12pm, 2.20pm and 4.45pm.

Earlier, checks by NST showed that the two-hour movie, was originally scheduled to be screened at the Lotus Five Star cinema at Kompleks Bukit Jambul, Bayan Lepas, with the maiden show premiering at 12:10pm.

As stated on a local cinema news portal, Cinema Online, the cinema had four other screen times-- 2.30pm, 4.45pm, 7pm, and the last one at 9.15pm.

LFS Bukit Jambul cinema spokesperson Sanjiev Ganthan said it had to comply after receiving a letter from the local council.

"We have a note from the Penang Island Municipal Council (MPPP). We are not playing it," he said when contacted earlier.

Besides Kompleks Bukit Jambul, LFS also operates another Cineplex at Prangin Mall here.

Earlier, Golden Screen Cinemas, which operates three cinemas in Gurney Plaza, Queensbay Mall and Sunway Carnival, had decided not to screen the movie as after receiving a note from their respective local councils.
