Qingdao man finds solace in movies amid outbreak

By Xie Chuanjiao in Qingdao, Shandong | (chinadaily.com.cn) | 2020-02-27

A man surnamed Leng, 30, in Qingdao, East China's Shandong province, has created a mini cinema of sorts with cardboard and used clothes. A mobile "IMAX" screen was installed in his makeshift theater. He munched on popcorn and drank soft drinks while watching the recent hit Lost in Russia.

All cinemas on the Chinese mainland have been closed since late January due to the novel coronavirus pneumonia outbreak.

"I am really eager to watch movies at cinemas, which I have not visited for two or three months," said Leng, a local graphic designer.

Leng said he spent only one day making the mini cinema.
