Exclusive! 100 days since Kerala theatres were shut. Do we miss ‘The’ theatrical experience? PR Arun and others answer

On March 10, Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan requested all cinema halls in the state to remain shut till the end of the month, in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak. As the situation worsened, the cinema halls haven’t re-opened till date and the uncertainty continues. Entertainment was on a lower priority during the initial days as the world was dealing with a life or death situation, and hence the cinema halls remaining shut wasn’t a big deal. But as over 100 days have passed without the theatrical experience, most of them have started to feel the void it has created. There are also heated discussions about a paradigm shift in the cinema viewing experience and hence, we caught up with a few people - PR Arun, a filmmaker, Suresh Shenoy, a theatre owner, Haridas P, a projection operator and Hari Krishna Prasad, a regular movie viewer, to know if they have got adjusted to the new norm and how these 100 days have gone by. In an exclusive interview with ETimes, this bunch of movie lovers shares their thoughts on how the viewing pattern has changed post-lockdown and whether they miss ‘The’ theatrical experience.

And share your comments  theatrical experience in theater.
