Viewers must be allowed to take food inside theatres: LMO
In order to ensure that customers visiting cinema halls are not fleeced, the Legal Metrology Organisation (LMO) recently wrote to the state Revenue Department to direct cinema halls to stop unfair practices.
The LMO had taken action against cinema halls for overcharging food products sold inside their premises. After this, cinema halls started selling loose products at very high prices. As a result, the agency has now suggested to the government to direct cinema halls to allow consumers to take their own food items and cold drinks inside auditoriums.
