Cinemagoers across the country won’t have to shell out big bucks for bottled water anymore after the national consumer court ruled on Thursday that movie theatres were obligated to provide drinking water facilities inside halls.

“Appropriate water purifiers need to be installed with water coolers so that the water available is free from the impurities. Disposable glasses in sufficient quantity need to be kept available,” said the NCDRC bench headed by justice VK Jain, acoording to a report by Hindustan Times

Theatre management should ensure water supply is available through regularly-serviced coolers before the movie as well as through the course of the film, the NCDRC said. “If for any reason water supply is not available on a particular day, alternative arrangements for free potable drinking water to cinemagoers need to be made available by the owners,” said the NCDRC.
