With the closing down of the iconic Malancha Cinema hall, Kolkata loses a part of its heritage
Today, it is the era of technology. With every passing day, we witness advancement in technologies which makes our lives easier than it was before. We live in an era where everything can be done from the comfort of our home and we do not even need to go out for the tasks we had a few years back. Starting from movies to banking, everything can be done through our mobile phones.
While the advancement in technology is always welcome, we are losing some of the old memories which lit up our childhood. And one such story is that of the Malancha cinema hall in South Kolkata, which has come to a standstill.
For all the movie buffs in Kolkata to be sad about, the reputed and aged Malancha cinema hall is on the verge of closing down permanently.
It was one of the most talked about theatres a few years back and it screened almost every big Bollywood film. But the emergence of applications like Netflix, Amazon Prime etc have made movies easily available to all of us which have seen these single plexes lose their spot in the market.
As per News18, Malancha screened its last show on 14th of August 2018 and is unlikely that will again redeem its past glory. Malancha’s owner Amar Ray Chowdhury spoke to News 18 and it is clear that the craze of watching movies at single plexes are slowly extinguishing.
According to him, it is getting all the more difficult to run the cinema hall with such low response from people as there are many expenses which need to be taken care of. He further added that the air condition bill sums up to be 2-3 lakhs/month and there are other expenses like maintenance, corporation tax, the salary of staff etc.
