From August, You Can Carry Food Inside Theatres in Maharashtra

Come August, moviegoers in Maharashtra will be allowed to carry their own food items inside cinema halls. In addition, a senior MLA of state assembly said that food items in the theatres will be sold at MRP from 1 August.

During a state assembly meeting on Friday, 13 June, in Nagpur, Bharatiya Janata Party leader and Maharashtra’s Minister of Information and Technology, Ravindra Chauhan, said that after August, moviegoers will be allowed to carry packaged food inside movie theatres.

The decision comes in the wake of pressure from Raj Thackeray-led Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS), who in a series of protests sought an explanation for the exuberant prices charged for food at movie theatres.
