Cinema Beneath A Bridge Helps Delhi’s Poor Unwind

 

Cinema beneath a bridge helps Delhi’s poor unwind, escape drudgery. Delhi’s rickshaw pullers, labourers and junk dealers find comfort in makeshift cinema hall under British-era bridge. Under the 140-year-old double storied bridge, makeshift cinema hall showcases four films per day.

 

 

The old bridge on the banks of river Yamuna helps poor rickshaw pullers and migrant labourers of New Delhi unwind and temporarily escape into a world of Bollywood.

 

Organisers pooled money together to rent an old television set along with a VCD player.They charge 10 rupees admission – a hundredth of the price of entry at Delhi’s fanciest movie theatres.
