I was with a director friend yesterday after having watched the movie "Taxi driver" (this film makes sense die) and while talking he noted that filmhouse cinemas are financing a large number of new nollywood films (including taxi driver) and as such it makes to patronize them and that got me thinking.

For some time now I have been shouting myself hoarse that distribution is the major impediment in the advance of the Nigerian movie industry and that any new investor should go there.

Well I want to use this space to commend Filmhouse cinemas and their distribution arm filmone for doing a lot for the Nigerian movie eco system. Not only are they the fastest growing cinema chain in the country. (At last count they had 8 cinemas with 25 screens and counting) with the lowest ticket prices (N500-N600) but they are proving to be one of the biggest financiers and distributors of “new nollywood” Nigerian movies.

Its really great to hear stories like this. Not only has filmhouse outdone their competition silverbird and genesis cinemas, in terms of movie quality(Imax and 3d), they have expanded to regions in Nigeria that are lacking cinemas. They have a new location in benin and you can find more information about it on https://hotels.ng/guides/destinations/filmhouse-cinemas-locations-ticket-prices-nationwide/.
