In Lucknow, movie tickets will cost extra

<p>There’s terrible news for Lucknow moviegoers. A plan to increase the taxation on the city’s movie theaters in order to raise funds was approved by the Lucknow Municipal Corporation (LMC) House with unanimous votes.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-287869″ src=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/theindiaprint.com-movie-tickets-to-cost-more-in-lucknow-heres-the-reason-you-should-know-11zon.jpg” alt=”theindiaprint.com movie tickets to cost more in lucknow heres the reason you should know 11zon” width=”1279″ height=”863″ title=”In Lucknow, movie tickets will cost extra 3″ srcset=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/theindiaprint.com-movie-tickets-to-cost-more-in-lucknow-heres-the-reason-you-should-know-11zon.jpg 400w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/theindiaprint.com-movie-tickets-to-cost-more-in-lucknow-heres-the-reason-you-should-know-11zon-150×101.jpg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 1279px) 100vw, 1279px” /></p>
<p>Municipal tax is now levied at Rs 25 each show, but the House suggested raising it to around Rs 100. In order to implement this proposal, a committee would be formed.</p>
<p>Mayor Sushma Kharakwal said on Thursday that a review of the movie theater tax was necessary since it had not been examined in a number of years.</p>
<p>There are over 350 performances every day. According to authorities, the LMC will generate four times more income if tax rates are raised.</p>
<p>“At the very least, we should have been consulted before the decision was taken,” said a UP Cinema Federation office-bearer. Certainly, it will impact the average person. Cinemas will have to raise ticket prices if they are forced to pay more.</p>
