How cinemas work in wartime
With the return of major premieres, Ukrainian cinemas began to gradually increase the number of screenings per day. At the same time, the sessions are tied to the curfew and the operation of public transport – the earliest sessions start at 10:00, and the latest at 19:00.
At the same time, cinemas under martial law operate with certain features. So, if an air raid starts, then the film screening stops, and the audience is asked to leave the hall and go to the nearest bomb shelter. Most often, if the alarm is less than half an hour, then the film is shown from where it left off, if it takes longer, they return the money or offer to exchange the ticket for another session.
Also, you can look the best series of june 2022 – Season 3 of The Umbrella Academy, Season 1 of Paper House: Korea and Season 4 of Westworld will premiere this week.
