Movie theaters across Lebanon began screening the latest film from prolific Hollywood director Steven Spielberg "The Post" on schedule Thursday, despite concerns that it would be banned before it opened.Lea Baroudi, the president of March Lebanon, an NGO campaigning for free expression, commented on hypocrisy and inconsistency regarding how the ban was applied, noting that many of Spielberg's films had been screened, including action film series "Transformers" and cold-war historical drama "Bridge of Spies".Prime Minister Saad Hariri intervened Wednesday to make sure film screenings went ahead, with a government source telling The Daily Star that the premier was against the idea of banning films.
