Iran’s Movie Theatres Thriving

Iranian movie theatres are enjoying a boom, “fueled largely by a greater number of homegrown romantic comedies, which have lured people back to the big screen. Movie theaters took in more than $2 million between March and May this year, up 100 percent from the same period last year, the state cinema authority Farabi reported.” (the tickets cost only $1).
