Shall We Go To The Movies?

There was a time when going to the movies was an event.

Sadly, many of the old ones have perished. These old ones, in Delhi for instance, each had a character of it’s own.

You went to Chanakya, for instance, for the seats, the ambience, the carpeting.

In the old Mughal times, there were no cinemas. Excelsior was one of the theatres that was set up during the times of British India. Even in those days, there were traffic jams, as per the old quotes that I recently read while researching Delhi.

The memories of those old theatre goers live on in the bones of the old theatres, the bones that are still standing.

But, like dust, they shall return to dust. New traditions emerge, and the age changes.
