  2. Not many single-screen movie houses left in this country...which is too bad, in my opinion. I'm not sure they are "paradise," though! ;-) Housefull looks like an interesting movie...have you seen it?

  5. Perfect for this week's theme! Single cinema buildings are all gone here, replaced by multi-duplex theatre rooms in shopping malls.

  7. Those are a disappearing entity.. single screen theatres. I'm not sure that's a good thing. That film though would do good to disappear :-)

  8. Aah, you make me so nostalgic. My dad was in film distribution business and as a child I often went to the theatres and asked the manager for a seat to watch the next show. That joy, that pleasure is gone with the multiplexes. Glad you captured history again before even this fades!

  10. Good old world charm "Paradise". Considered outdated & out of synch with current styles - may soon become extinct !

  14. I prefer having multiplexes and e-booking tickets, but I miss the single-screen theaters like Plaza and Starcity. It's cognitive dissonance I guess!

  20. I'm fond of such realistic crude captures and not the photo-shopped ones..i was trying to read something written in hindi on the board in the picture..

    1. The board has the name of the junction written on it - Karmayogi Dr.Arvind Bavdekar Chowk :) If you click on the pic you can see the enlarged version.
