The government manages to square the circle, raise taxes, causing a drop in revenue. The Spanish, from September 1, bear the highest tax of 17 European countries whenever they want to go see a movie at the cinema, a concert or a play. This tax goes from 8% to 21%.
The collection will drop in theaters almost 10 million euros with VAT increase , so will force to close to 859 rooms. This means layoffs of more than 3,500 employees.
