A soft opening ceremony for Paradiso Cinema in Shwebo Township, Sagaing Region, will be held on August 25 with free screenings of new Myanmar comedies.

The soft launch will be held at 10am, and three comedies will be shown free of charge. The first one will be shown at noon, the second at 3:30pm and the last at 6:30pm. Tickets for the three films will be on sale at the cinema from August 26 to 31.

"As of October 1, we will show new Myanmar films. As usual, our aim is to open cinemas in the regions across Myanmar with a few or no cinemas. We are also planning to open more cinemas in large cities," said Myanmar Academy Award-winning actor Lwin Moe.

The Shwebo Paradiso Cinema will officially open on October 1, and several famous film stars will attend the opening. Paradiso Cinemas have been opened in several other towns, such as Hmawby, Aungpan, Pyapon and Monywa.
