Ceiling Collapse

RECENTLY a section of the false ceiling in the cinemas of the Rincón de la Victoria shopping centre collapsed. Fortunately, there were no reported injuries as the affected area was closed to the public at the time.

The collapse occurred in the bar area where screens are located and drinks are served. As a precautionary measure, the area was immediately cordoned off, and the projection rooms were temporarily closed, according to sources from the shopping centre.

No police or firefighters were needed as the establishment’s security personnel managed the situation. Investigations into the cause of the collapse are likely to follow, ensuring the safety of patrons and staff in the future.
