Nigerian cinemas’ revenues plunged in July; N482 million generated: CEAN

The Cinema Exhibitors Association of Nigeria (CEAN) says it generated N482 million as revenue across all cinemas in Nigeria in July.

The CEAN national chairman, Opeyemi Ajayi , disclosed this in an interview in Lagos.

Mr Ajayi said total viewer admission in cinemas across the federation in July was 218,395, noting that the cinemas experienced a slight increase in patronage due to public holidays. The figure was 210,299 in June.

He encouraged more Nigerians to consider visiting the cinemas to unwind.

“We recorded a total sales of N482,528,117 for July with 218,395 viewers in the cinemas. The cinemas are not doing bad but we encourage more Nigerians to cultivate the habit of visiting the cinemas,” said Mr Ajayi.

Mr Ajayi listed movies to be shown in cinemas in August to include ‘Akuddaya’, ‘Meg 2’, ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja’, ‘A Bag of Trouble’, ‘Blue beetle’, ‘Mikolo’, ‘The Modern Woman’, ‘Retribution’ and ‘Kesari’.

The amount generated in July was lower than the N567 million generated in June.
