What is Accra Pictures by Day and Night?

Accra is the capital of the small, West African country of Ghana, which achieved its independence in 1957 from its colonial master, the United Kingdom. It celebrated 50 years in 2007, and is projecting itself fast and furiously as "gateway to West Africa".

It's an exciting city, with its unique problems, but with it close to the Atlantic ocean, and many beaches, who can resist coming here?

James Bond Will be in Accra Mall till This Week!

Last Friday, a teeming crowd in the Accra Mall could have meant one thing--that they were there to see the reality of duplex cinema come to Accra--and no less than the Accra Mall... they came in their numbers to witness not just snapshots of the movie, but to get the rather-prohibitive ticket cost of GHC10.00 (roughly $9.00)/person to enter the cinema... watch none other than Daniel Craig playing what is a sequel to Casino Royale -- the much-talked about Quantum of Solace!

I believe it coincided with worldwide release. Clearly, the Accra Mall is not just set to make history for the average Ghanaian(and Western) teenager on Friday nights, but create sufficient traffic to drive commuters slowly...insane!

Have yourselves a good one!

Yup, thats how much movie tickets cost here.....well till I moved from FL to va where it used to cost me $5.50 w/ my student ID, (ofcourse prices have gone up so I dont know how much it costs now). It costs even more to see a movie in NYC.

Oh BTW, hi Emmanuel. I love your blog.

It is great to have a cineplex in Ghana. However, the costs are indeed prohibitive....Strange to think that I used to pay less (around $8.00) to watch movies in Times Square NYC on a much higher salary!

Lorraine--that is UNBELIEVABLE...Back in Belgium, it cost the equivalent of 5 Euros around the 1990s! My god...But anwyays, many thanks for your compliments. It isn't what it is without YOUR visit.

Thank you!

Abena--I get a subliminal sense that you need a pay-rise!:-D Well, we just have to swallow hard, I guess?
