Saxon cinemas seek subsidies

Smaller theaters at risk

BERLIN — The Assn. of German Cinemas has called for the reinstatement of subsidies for movie theaters in the state of Saxony.

The state government cut theater subsidies out of its annual budget this year. In 1998 the state offered movie houses more than $55,000 in public money for additional film copies.

The association has sent an official request asking for a return to subsidies, declaring that some 40 small-town cinemas in Saxony are in danger of bankruptcy without government help.
