What is the difference between a Cinema and Movie House in Ghana?
In Ghana in most towns and regions, it’s very easy to find a place to watch a movie as any lounge bars and venues provide movie nights and evenings where local films or classics are shown. If you come across the term “Private Room and Lounge” or Movie House theatre these are more for the “Netflix and Chill” audience. Where you get the opportunity to book a motel style room with a movie and as they say and chill. Not for kids and families, you have been warned.
