February 14 was Valentine’s Day and to mark the day, ‘A Letter from Adam’, a movie by actress Lydia Forson was screened at the West Hills Mall, located at Weija.
The screening scored high marks.
A lot of movie fans were at the Silverbird Cinemas at West Hills Mall to see the movie with some top celebrities who were also there to support the actress.
Present at the ceremony were Deputy Minister of Tourism & Creative Arts, Dzifa Gomashie, new CEO of Africa Movie Academy Awards (AMAA), Dayo Ogunyemi, actors; Adjetey Anang, Nana Ama McBrown, Beverly Afaglo, Louie Lartey and the president of Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA); Obour.
The rest included musicians; Eugene Baah aka Praye Honeho of Praye fame, Okyeame Kwame, MTN General Manager; Richard Acheampong and a host of others.
It was the movie’s second screening in the capital Accra after its main premiere on September 19 2014.
No movie has so far gone off the cinemas in Accra for several months and made a comeback to register a cinema success but A Letter From Adam did that on Saturday.
It was a sold out event as it broke turnout records at the West Hills Mall Cinema.
Screening started 7:30pm with one cinema hall but Lydia and her team was forced into making arrangement for an additional hall, which also got full in no time.
There were still large numbers of people demanding for tickets but cinema operators had to stop selling because it was late.
The actress took to social media on Sunday morning to apologize to movie fans who couldn’t see the movie saying, “biggest turn out for a movie, both foreign and local at the West Hills Mall since its opening! Record set! Haven’t slept all night because I’m still trying to take it all in. I sincerely apologize to everyone who came and couldn’t come in because it was full. We didn’t anticipate this and it was too late to do another showing…”
