The following project explores the inner arteries of Mumbai’s cinema halls. The buildings themselves are the narrators, speaking of the subliminal psychology of their form, their interaction with audiences and staff through the years, and finally, of their status–and eventual decay–as societal ideals.

The project was partly supported by a fellowship from SARAI and The Centre for the Study of Developing Societies (CSDS). Many thanks to all the people there for believing that this was something worth doing.
