Watch & Dine Cinema to revive cinema in Ghana
Just when people thought the culture of cinemas was ebbing away, Watch & Dine Cinema stepped into the fray with fun-packed activities for movie lovers.
Located at the Kumasi Mall in the Ashanti Region, Watch & Dine Cinema since its inception has introduced a monthly package for specific target group.
August – Religious Month
In August, movie tickets were massively discounted to attract the religious community. eg the Eid-ul Adha.
As part of the religious month, there were specific movies for such occasion. Tickets were sold at real discounted prices for the group.
Families of these bodies came out to watch movies and eat.
The days of boredom and constriction of religious bodies at secular events is over – now, they have an alternative source of entertainment.
September – Akwaaba Movie Night
September is being dedicated to freshers of the various senior high and tertiary institutions. Called the Akwaaba Movie Night, tickets were sold as low as GHc. 10.
On Friday 7th September, 2018 Insomnia Movie Night was organised where the fresher’s chose to watch any movie until say break.
Similar concept is happening this 14th September, 2018 for the continuing students who just reported to school. That is called back to School Movie Insomnia.
Movies showing are The Nun, Crazy Rich Asians, Peppermint and yet-to-be released Predator which will be released on the same day.
Watch & Dine has set September as the month for students so any student with an ID can enjoy huge movie ticket discount.
The Cinema has partnered Studxpress an SRC students group who ensures students enjoy good discount with companies that have high student patronage. They are giving a discount of 10% to all studxpress holders.
October – Workers’ Month
Watch & Dine Cinema has a special package for corporate bodies, small – scale enterprises and petty traders.
The Cinema encourages companies to put a smile on the faces of their clients by rewarding them with W&D gift vouchers.
Hotels, banks, mobile phone companies are encouraged to patronise this awesome gesture to make their clients feel special.
Apart from appreciating clients, the companies can also reward their outstanding staffs or workers with the W&D gift vouchers.
In November – W&D Customers’ Month
To cap it all, W&D Cinema, for the love of its clients would want to make them feel special.
In November, they will give out movie passes to reward their customers.
Movie lovers are rewarded with such passes to enable them watch more movies but make it more affordable in a month.
This is how it works – it is like any subscription: if one pays 25ghc to watch a movie per visit, when they subscribe to the W&D Movie pass for a month, the person can pay 40ghc to enjoy movies at any time, any day throughout the month.
