RWM to reopen mall, cinema and theatre on Thursday

Travellers International Hotel Group says it is planning to reopen the non-gaming areas of the Resorts World Manila complex on Thursday.

The non-gaming areas in question include the Mall, Cinema and the Newport Performing Arts Theatre, according to a filing from the operator on Wednesday.

The Remington Hotel, Star Cruises Center, Marriott Hotel and Marriott Grand Ballroom, which the operator said were not affected by the casino attack, continue to be fully operational.

In regards to the business, operation and financial effects of the casino attack, Travellers said that it was “premature at this point to assess the full impact of the foregoing events,” but says it will inform the exchange as soon as the assessment of the impact is completed.

Several areas of the resort were closed following the casino attack on June 2 that left 38 people dead.
