Independent cinemas supporting each other for more than 25 years

Independent cinemas supporting each other through the pandemic

The cinema industry is severely impacted by the COVID crisis.  Mandated closures and capacity restrictions are necessary but financially disastrous.  Major movies are bypassing exhibition, releasing simultaneously or pushing out to later release dates.  The impact on family and regional businesses is especially harsh.  Independent Cinemas Australia (ICA) is here providing information and support for indie exhibitors. Our essential work led directly to the Federal Government establishing the SCREEN Fund providing $20 million in COVID assistance grants to independent exhibitors.
