The application for participation in the campaign, which caused conflicts between filmmakers and directors and caused the postponement of many films, ended on January 30, 2019, when a new law on cinema was published in the official newspaper. Now viewers will receive movie tickets only at the box office.
Law No. 5224 “On the Evaluation and Classification of Film Films”, a law passed by the Grand National Assembly of Turkey on January 18, 2019 after the signing of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in the Official Gazette, was published and entered into force.
Filmmakers and film operators had controversy over the “campaign for ticket applications.” Therefore, “Organized works – Sazan Sarmalı” and “Karakomik Films” were postponed, “Recep İvedik 6” and “Mucize 2: Aşk” were not specified.
Law No. 5224 “On the Evaluation and Classification of Film Films”, prepared by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, also covered the problem of application of tickets for Desteklen tickets by cinematographers and cameramen.

As of January 30, 2019;
one- Cinema operators will no longer be able to sell tickets by subscription.
2- Cinema operators can no longer sell movie tickets with any products. Movie tickets will be sold separately, goods separately. Viewers will be able to buy a movie ticket only at the box office. At the request of the viewer, he / she will be able to buy food and drinks with a separate fork, which does not depend on a movie ticket.
In addition, movie tickets will not be sold outside the cinema. For example, there will be no movie tickets with cheese from the market.

A cameraman, producer: “Is this film everywhere now to show 9 TL?” He asks. If accepted, the parties will make a discount on the ticket.
Operators of cinemas, again in agreement with the producer “public day”, “first session”, in other special cases, such as discounts on ticket prices.
