Menoufia welcomes its first cinema in 20 years

Menoufia’s Shebin El Kom city saw the opening of the governorate’s first movie theater in 20 years with much fanfare, Masrawy reports. Cinemas had been gradually shutting down in the governorate for years, with residents left with no option but to attend the local culture center’s weekly screenings. The new cinema comes as part of an initiative by a group called Cinema Club, which plans to open more theaters in outlying governorates. The initiative has opened theaters in Tanta and Gouna, and currently working on opening more in Banha, Fayoum, and Beni Suef.

Yesterday marked the International Day of Zero Tolerance for Female Genital Mutilation, a practice affecting an estimated 200 mn girls and women worldwide, including here in Egypt. Reuters has some facts and figures.
