CEAN announces resumption date for cinemas in Nigeria

The Cinema Exhibitors Association of Nigeria (CEAN) has announced that theatres across the country will now reopen on September 11, following months of shutdown.

The association broke the news via its Instagram page on Monday, in a development that would end months of shutdown which the federal government had enforced in March to curb COVID-19 spread.

“Hip! Hip! Hurray! WE ARE BACK! Visit any Cinema near you from September 11th! We cannot contain our excitement,” it wrote.

Patrick Lee, the chairman of CEAN, while speaking on the effect of the COVID-19 lockdown in August, had said the industry kept losing N1 billion on a monthly basis, rendering staff jobless.

Patrick’s statement came after some celebrities had called on the government to reopen cinemas.
