Two of the five films, Pengabdi Setan and Posesif, are currently still being shown in local cinemas. The three others were released between December last year and April this year, as reported by kompas.com.

Due to limited seating, those interested in attending the free screenings should book their tickets at least 30 minutes before the film is scheduled to begin. (kes)
