Following the decision to allow cinemas to reopen (but at 50% capacity), movie theaters across Lebanon are finally welcoming enthusiastic audiences again after more than a year of closure.
This long-awaited welcoming comes with an unprecedented price, though, as movie lovers will have to pay almost 4-5 times what they used to spend to watch the latest film production.
Due to the exchange rate and the losses cinemas have endured amid the pandemic, the price of a movie ticket is now set to LBP 50,000.-
For those under the age of 15, ticket prices stand at LBP 35,000.-
However, offers and bundles will be created for families to help and encourage them to enjoy time together without breaking the budget amid the financial chaos Lebanon is experiencing.
Finally, social distancing and face masks are still required for cinema-goers to maintain safety measures against the virus. On the bright side, with 50% capacity, you can probably get good seats.
