According to the newly-enforced provisions, public performances in a language other than the state language, including theatrical ones, in state-run or municipal theaters, shall be accompanied by oral interpretation, subtitles, or otherwise translated into the state language.

The state language shall also be mandated in museums and art exhibitions, as well as in the distribution and screening of films.
