    Background: Following a decision of the "Panhellenic Cinematographic Meeting" of last December, all Cinemas and Cinema-Halls of the country will be closed today and tonight as a sign of protest against the Greek Government's indifference towards the claims of the Greek Film producers and Cinema owners. The closing down of the Cinemas today is just a warning of the "Unions" of the country prior to an indefinite suspension of their activities in Greece should the Government wont solve their problems. The Cinemas "Unions" demand less taxes on the tickets and other facilities due to the fantastic reduction of spectators following the growing up of the Greek television nets.
