    revising of one sentence

    Dear teachers,

    Would you tell me whether I was right making the following amendments in bold below?

    Halls of two festival cinemas ("35 mm" and "Pioneer") is not empty, even at night sessions.

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Hello V!

    Your first revision from "is" to "are" is right. Halls are... "Halls" is plural.

    As to "sessions", I don't see such a problem there. I have never seen the expression "film-shows". If you want to change "sessions", I would try "showings".
