According to a media report, one of the multiplex operators QFX has decided to close its theaters because of the ban in screening Hindi movies starting from Monday. The distribution manager of QFX, Basanta Manandhar, told that they don’t have "any quality Nepali movie" to screen in their theaters. QFX’s all three theaters – QFX Jainepal, QFX Kumari and QFX Central in Civil Mall, Sundhara are closed for now. The report also says that another multiplex, BigCinemas, has also limited to operating only one of its theaters from Monday.
These decisions are told to be made in response to the CPN-Maoist (Baidhya faction) decision to ban the screening of Hindi movies in Nepal.
Do you think banning movies (or, banning anything for that matter) help in the development of a country?
UPDATE: QFX previously announced the closure of theater on Friday.
On Saturday, they decided to open the theater on Sunday.
QFX cinemas Facebook profile however mentions the release of Nepali movie ‘Visa Girl’ starting this Friday, Oct 5, 2012.
Quote from Facebook profile:
Visa Girl is a Nepali romantic comedy based on the lives of one sweet girl with a charitable heart and three young and ambitious men who goes after her. Through the journey, love is gained, lost and regained and all of them come out of the experience earning valuable lessons for life.
Support Nepali movies and movie makers. VISA GIRL coming to QFX this weekend, October 5 :)
