Kinofest to boost admissions

Kinofest to boost admissions

- As snowflakes have started to fall on Norwegian ground, kids will no doubt flock into cinemas this Saturday to watch Walt Disney’s A Christmas Carol and several Norwegian family films, for only half the price thanks to the special Kinofest (Cinema Day) organised by the local cinema association Film & Kino and the Norwegian Distributors Association.

Smaller cinemas to multiplexes in major cities will be screening new and archive movies from the first morning show at 10:30 to late night screenings, or even round the clock screenings like at Oslo’s Colosseum multiplex.
