Portuguese cinemas reel in audience

Going to the Cinema in itself is a great treat but an initiative in Portugal has started today to celebrate this sensation.

The initiative, which was started by the Portuguese movie exhibitors and distributors kicked off Monday on its three day film festival. The news of this festival has spread across the country in an act of celebrating the cultural and social act.

Until Wednesday, 500 main cinemas across Portugal will open their doors to all movie lovers. Ticket prices have also been lowered to 2.50 Euros to encourage a bigger audience to participate. Unfortunately, this does not include 3D movies.

According to the organisers, they hope to haul in an audience of 200 000 over the next few days.
