Photographer's Note

Cinema Hall : The old style cinema halls in Calcutta have taken a back seat after the advent of multiplexes in the city at the turn of the millennium. Previously till the nineties,Central Calcutta had more than twenty cinema halls within the close vicinity of the Esplanade area.As of now only a few cinema halls are operational,which includes the Paradise Cinema Hall on Bentinck Street.In this image you can see the Paradise cinema Hall featuring one of the latest Bollywood Movies,Ram Leela.It is hard to believe but many of these old cinema halls have been turned into shopping complexes like City Mart in place of Lighthouse Cinema Hall or another mart in place of what was previously Tiger Cinema Hall.One of my favorites,Jamuna Cinema Hall has been turned into a Banquet Hall.
