Sameer Raichur, SV Srinivas
Whether it’s catching the morning show at Majestic or a rare English film at Rex, cinema halls hold a special place in Bangalore’s unique cosmopolitan culture. In fact, Bangalore once had the largest concentration of independent movie theatres anywhere in India. Given the increasing popularity of OTT platforms, single-screen cinemas may seem like relics of the past in the urban cityscape today.
Questioning this idea, photographer Sameer Raichur and cultural theorist Prof. SV Srinivas talk about the relevance of these iconic spaces in the city – their role in sustaining a prevailing cinema culture, as public spaces and more.
This event is in collaboration with Heritage Beku.
This event is fully booked.
