Award-winning Ghanaian actress Yvonne Nelson has called for the construction of more cinema halls in the country to help revive the ailing movie industry in the country.
The actress established that this among few other things can be done to help bring back the industry into its glory days.
The actress was in an interview with Accra based Hitz Fm on Monday.
As monitored by ghlinks.com.gh, Yvonne Nelson told host Andy Dosty that every region in Ghana should have at least 5 cinemas to premiere local movies when they are released so producers can make their monies they invested into the movies back. “We need more cinema halls. In Accra alone we need like 5 and maybe in all the regions. Let’s have like 5 in all regions like Kumasi, Sunyani, Volta Region, etc because when we are premiering our movies we have to go rent hotels, conference halls, etc”.

The actress turned producer also suggested that premiering of movies should be done at the same time across regions to help producers make their monies faster too. She said most at times, cinemas don’t like premiering the same movies on the same dates as it is done elsewhere and that she thinks isn’t helping the producers.
She concluded by pleading with investors to invest into the entertainment industry so entertainment can take a good shape in the country.
