Giving the update, the Director & CEO, Carnival Cinemas, Vishal Sawhney
said, “For us, National Cinema Day was a rousing success! Movie theaters were packed with viewers and tickets were sold out quickly. To celebrate, all Carnival Cinemas multiplexes across India will offer tickets, ranging from Rs. 75 to Rs. 100, from Monday, September 26, 2022 to Thursday, September 29, 2022.”

An Eye Opener
“The National Cinema Day has been an eye-opener. Multiplexes have first-hand got the idea of how viewers thronged their cinema halls in large numbers. Not just Brahmastra but even Chup and Dhokha Round D Corner’s tickets were lapped up. It has reignited discussions about the importance of reasonable ticket prices and this time it’ll not die down. Hopefully, in the near future, viewers will be able to watch films at cheaper prices, just like in the good old days. We hope the distributors and producers, too, cooperate and don’t compel multiplexes to hike ticket prices for festive releases,” said an industry expert.
