Sangeet Theatre in Secunderabad will have its last screening this evening. On Monday, the nearly 40 year old theatre will be pulled down to make way for a multiplex.
I remember, like Sheetal, the way we all made crocs and walked across the road from school to watch films (Shaggy DA! Other films with dogs! Tom And Jerry as a special treat before!); I remember the awe with which I regarded my classmate, who was not only the inheritor of all this glamour but was a fantastic tennis player.
And the chutney sandwiches at Sangeet! The rolls which we learnt to put on every finger and wave at indulgent older people. Sigh.
More here and here.
PS: Impossible, of course, not to think of this film under the circs.
