Cinema is not just entertainment, it's a way of life in India. Inspiring, enraging and emotionally enticing at times, these mesmerizing portrayals make us proud, we laugh out loud and even break down into tears at instances. With a pivotal part of these experiences being in a theatre or a cinema hall, we have so many memories attached to such places. But gone are the days when you would be restricted to the same old theatre, that are dark and confined to 4 walls, for there's so much more to it by now. Well yeah, so much more like the stars, cool breezes and an undefined sense of freedom of being out in the open. Unconventional ways or open-air cinemas have made way for a new trend in the world of movies.
Bringing you a step closer to these unconventional cinema experiences, we present 5 unique theatres across India that allow you to watch a movie under the starlit sky.
