Yvonne Okoro's movie, The Contract has hit another cinema jackpot.
Over the weekend, the movie had a successful public premiering event in Kumasi at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science Technology.
According to organisers of the premiere, iSolveAfrica and Happenerz, it was the first time students came out in their numbers to see a local movie.
“It would have been even bigger if the cast had attended the ceremony,” the stated. However, Saturday’s event made it the third successful premiering ceremony after The Contract was released for the cinemas in December last year.
The first was the huge turnout at the main premiere in Accra at National Theatre and the subsequent showings at Silverbird Cinemas.
The Kumasi event was held at the Social Science Auditorium, a 1,200 capacity auditorium.
There were three showings in all and each showing had more patronage than the organizers anticipated.
The first showing had over eighty percent patronage while the second screening had a full house. The numbers of the third screening was quite surprising and amazing, according to organisers. It had a little over 90 percent patronage.
It was late but patrons waited to see the movie. The premiere thus closed at 2:00am Sunday January 27.
