Popular multiplex chain, PVR is making quite a wave on social media. Responding to a viral tweet by a cinegoer who expressed shock at the soaring food prices, the multiplex announced a host of affordable offers. 

The Quint’s Tridip Mandal took to Twitter to share how a tub of popcorn and a glass of soft drink cost him as much as an annual OTT subscription.

Sharing a snap of the bill, he wrote, “No wonder people don’t go to cinemas anymore. Movie watching with family has just become unaffordable.”
