What Is National Cinema Day?
It is a first for the country. Despite its no history, the country’s moviegoers have an opportunity to make history on this special day. Actually, the corona outbreak has wreaked havoc on the theatrical industry. For over two years, movie halls around the globe struggled greatly as a result of closures or the 50% capacity limit. Even when cinemas reopened after the epidemic, only a few people left their homes to see the movies.
Blockbusters from Bollywood to the South continue to dominate the box office. In this case, the Association of Multiplex Owners agreed to commemorate the reopening of theatres around the country. Multiplexes would set the entry price for one day at Rs 75 to entice people to return to the theatre so that those who enjoy movies may go to the theatre and celebrate it. This activity has been designated as ‘National Cinema Day.’ The Multiplex Association of India has launched this deal (MAI).
What Is Multiplex Association Of India?
MAI, or the Multiplex Association of India, was established in 2002. This association is affiliated with FICCI or the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry. In simple words, MAI is a collection of several multiplex businesses located around the country. Approximately 500 cinemas with 4000 screens in India are linked to it in this manner. It represents one-quarter of the overall number of theaters within the nation.
This group comprises theater chains such as PVR, INOX, Cinepolis, and Carnival Cinemas. Following the Corona pandemic, the country now has around 11,000 solo and theater screens. According to the organization, one of the objectives for bringing the customer to the movie hall is to say “Thank You” to the film lovers of the country since it is due to these crowds that the theater hall’s business operates.
In Which Cinemas Will You Be Able to Watch The Film For Rs 75?
Kamal Gyanchandani is the Chairman of MAI. He also serves as the CEO of PVR Pictures Ltd. ‘There are 11000 theater screens in the country,’ adds Kamal. National Cinema Day will be observed in around 4000 theaters. Each of these auditoriums, or movie halls, has 400 seats on average.
So, According to this calculation, on National Cinema Day, 16000 people can take advantage of this deal at once. PVR, INOX, Cinepolis, Carnival, Miraj, City Pride, Asian, Mukta A2, MovieTime, Wave, M2K, and Delite Cinemas are among the theater chains in which tickets would be priced at Rs 75 on September 23rd.
Many single-screen cinemas around the country have revealed their initiative participation. Furthermore, standard seat tickets will be sold for Rs 75, while reclining seats will be priced between Rs 100-200. IMAX ticket costs will be cut as well.
Which Movies Will Be Shown On National Cinema Day?
On the celebration of National Cinema Day, the public can watch the recently released movies. A few are ‘Brahmastra,’ ‘Jahan Chaar Yaar,’ ‘Middle Class Love,’ and ‘Saroj Ka Rishta’ for just Rs 75, whereas two new movies will be accessible on September 23rd.
In addition, ‘Dhokha: Round the Corner,‘ ‘Prem Geet 3’, and Sunny Deol’s ‘Chup: Revenge Of The Artist’ will be released. Aside from that, KGF: Chapter 2, RRR, ‘Vikram,’ ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’, and Hollywood’s ‘Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness,’ ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ will be available in theatres on the same day.
Advance Booking Has Started For National Cinema Day
Several cinema businesses have begun pre-booking in anticipation of National Cinema Day. The good news is that Advance-Booking is also doing well. According to a ‘Bollywood Hungama‘ study, ‘Brahmastra‘ is the audience’s preferred pick for Advance-Booking. Most tickets for Ranbir and Alia’s ‘Brahmastra’ have been sold.
In 11 days, ‘Brahmastra’ has made over Rs 217 crore at the Indian box office. The film’s global profits have surpassed Rs 360 crore. There has been a lot of controversy concerning the film’s visual effects. In such a case, the opportunity to watch ‘Brahmastra’ on the large screen for 75 rupees is advantageous to the spectators.
National Cinema Day Will Also Be Celebrated At ‘Delite Cinema’ In Delhi
National Cinema Day will be observed in Delhi’s renowned ‘Delight Theater’ and multiplex networks. Along with ‘Brahmastra,’ a premiere of Sunny Deol and Dulquer Salmaan’s movie ‘Chup’ will take place on the same day.
