I recently came across a TV program about the new Marathi Movie “Touring Talkies”.
I was never aware of this form of showing movies in India. I got inquisitive and found out that this was the oldest traditional system of watching cinema. The travelling cinema. Movies shown in tents. The tents are common occurrences in most of the Jatras (spiritual fairs) taking place across villages where Cinema comes alive in unusual fashion.
Its spectacular how much people enjoyed in taking movies to remote areas. But this tradition is dying as people are moving out to the cinema halls in the cities.
I tried to look for a picture for you guys to have an idea.
