Sixty percent of major theater chains will likely maintain the screen quota at 146 days a year, despite the govenrment's plan to halve the figure to 73 days from July.

In a meeting Thursday, a Seoul theater association including CGV, Megabox and Lotte Cinema told Culture and Tourism Minister Chung Dong-chea and ruling party chairman Chung Dong-young that member theaters will decide on whether to preserve the quota.

Considering the number of screens the chains have nationwide, however, 60 percent of all theaters are likely to keep the quota at 146 days a year.
