Veteran actor Bob Smith Jr. has called on the President to consider implementing a ‘one district, one cinema’ policy to go along with his ‘one district, one factory’ one.
Speaking on Adom Fm, the popular ‘Diabolo’ actor said adding the cinemas would create more jobs and invigorate the movie industry.
“Government can decide to build a cinema hall with an eating joint where foods and drinks are in all the districts where the factories will be built to serve as a source of entertainment for the workers and residents of the area.” he said on Adom.
“If one cinema hall employs even 10 people, that is the operator of the hall, and the people who are cooking and serving the food and drinks you can imagine the number of jobs that will be created across the country, you are talking 2160 people,”
He said not only would the initiative create jobs, it would aid the flailing movie industry, and put cash in the pockets of those in it, who would in turn invest it in the industry to keep growing it.
“If a producer premieres his movie at least hundred out of the 216 cinemas simultaneously in a week the person can make huge sums of money and invest them back into the industry, thus the industry will grow.
“People will also get the opportunity to watch and enjoy the movies first hand before it hits the market,” he added.
