The Experience of Watching A Film In Theatres To Return In Kashmir After 23 Years

The Kashmir valley is all set for a film’s release in theatres after 23 years. Two epic movies, Vikram Vedha and Ponniyin Selvan-1 (PS-1), will be released on October 1 at the new INOX theatre in Srinagar’s Shiv Pora area. J&K Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha inaugurated the multiplex. The ticket sales will start on September 26 in the theatre, which features three screens and a total seating capacity of 522. “I see my dream coming true. Wholesome family entertainment had taken a back seat. When we were younger, we used to go to cinema halls in Kashmir. There were 10-12 cinema halls here,” said Vikas Dhar, owner of the multiplex. In the 1990s, 11 cinema halls across the Kashmir valley were shut down during large-scale militancy. Not worrying about the footfalls, Mr Dhar said: “This is not a business. We really wanted to bring the magic of cinema back. Success will be achieved on October 1 whether one person comes or a hundred. Showing movies on bigger screens after 35 years will be a dream come true.”
