How Netflix, others’ operations affect ours – Cinema operators

The Cinema Exhibitors Association of Nigeria (CEAN) have expressed worry over some movies going directly into movie streaming platforms, instead of cinemas where movies could be watched by a wider public.

This was disclosed by CEAN’s Chairman, Mr Patrick Lee, in Lagos on Wednesday.

According to him, the cinema experience is different from watching a movie on one’s mobile phone or computer, adding that the association was already discussing with the National Film and Video Censors Board (NFVCB) and Netflix, a movie streaming platform, to come to some sort of agreement with such investment.

“We are speaking with the National Film and Video Censors Board (NFVCB) and Netflix to see that those movies be allowed to have some streaming time at the cinema.

“We welcome such kind of investments because they will help the industry grow,” he told NAN.

He also assured film enthusiasts across the country of their safety against COVID-19 in all cinemas.

Lee said that considering the upsurge in the new variant of the pandemic, cinemas across the federation were also on alert to ensure that visitors strictly comply with COVID-19 safety protocols.

“We are taking the new variant of COVID-19 pandemic seriously, we are aware of the upsurge and we keep reminding our members daily on the need to adhere to the safety protocols.

“We are still keeping to the safety protocols of handwashing, social distancing, hand sanitising, temperature checks and the hall capacity agreed for each state.

“For Lagos State, we agreed 50 per cent hall capacity and we are keeping to the rule. We are also sending reminders to the 54 cinemas in the country, who are also sending to their staff to ensure the COVID-19 safety protocols are kept.
