Cinepolis takes 116 underprivileged kids to watch Rajini starrer ‘2.0’

Covai Post Network

Coimbatore : It was 116 underprivileged kids who had the privilege to watch Rajinikanth starrer ‘2.0’ at a theatre here.

The show was truly a memorable experience for many of them who have never visited a cinema hall and were enthralled by the initiative undertaken by global movie theatre circuit Cinépolis.

The screening, in association with Round Table India, was followed by a round of refreshments as well as an engaging discussion about the movie, a Cinepolis’ statement said

The initiative was part of Cinépolis’ endeavour to “change the lives of young children for the better”.

Fifty children from Vani Vidhyalaya run by the PKD Trust for economically backward children here and 66 from TISSO, a home for orphaned children in Tirupur were taken for the screening at Fun Cinemas here.

Cinépolis treated over 4,700 underprivileged children by screening the much-awaited action thriller across 18 cities as part of its CSR initiative ‘Let’s All Go to Cinépolis’.

It had been organising this activity in India for the last five years and had so far screened movies for 21,690 children, Cinepolis managing director Javier Sotomayor said.

Cinépolis India strategic Initiatives director Devang Sampat said, “Our partnership with Round Table India has helped bring our initiative to life in India and has been very successful.”
