Alexey Vasyanin told reporters that he was negotiating with the shopping center regarding the liquidation of part of the cinemas. According to the general director of Cinema Park, such a measure is forced and the only possible one, because film screenings are not charity, and cinemas should be profitable and pay off.
At the same time, according to Vasyanin, this measure will allow holding other cinemas so that people can receive services and enjoy cinema. According to him, there could be support from the state to close less profitable projects, thereby saving the rest of the cinemas that are in demand.
Recall that earlier the Association of Cinema Owners issued a statement that almost 50% of all domestic cinemas were under threat of closure. This is due to the fact that with the beginning of the Russian special operation in Ukraine, many foreign film studios refused to rent their products in Russia.
