Cultural vouchers to aid cinemas

The Culture Ministry plans to resume the cultural voucher programme introduced by the previous government to combat the decreasing number of cinema-goers, the Sme daily wrote on August 7.

In the first half of this year, about 1.3 million people visited cinemas in Slovakia, which is 23 percent less than a year ago.

The ministry believes the vouchers will increase cinema's visit rates. It plans to allocate Sk100 million for this purpose next year.
