Jamphel Sharab has a nice photoessay showing Delhi’s single screen theatres. Do see the ticket prices on the boards. Shockingly low!
How cinema has changed over the years from single screen mega hall to multiple screen small halls. Whatever the changes or innovations, it is really sad that viewing cinema has become so costly. There was a time when most could watch a movie as it was really economical. There were several classes from Box (the highest) to Dress Circle (the lowest) with balcony in middle. Now most find it difficult given exorbitant prices.
The next set of innovation in cinema should be focused on making it more affordable. Especially given the poor quality of movies going around, you feel dejected each time you take the risk of watching a movie..
