A city walk this weekend will take participants through the history of single-screen cinemas in South Mumbai, including the history of Capitol, Excelsior, Edward, New Empire and Liberty. And get this: the walk ends with a secret movie screening.
Single-screen cinemas in Mumbai have some of the most interesting stories and architecture in the city. That, combined with the vintage Bollywood memories of watching movies in these beautiful surroundings, makes for an amazing weekend experience. We’re also pretty pumped about the secret movie screening. Fingers crossed, we hope it’s Andaz Apna Apna.
Breakfast and snacks are included in the ticket, and can cost a maximum of INR 150 per person. The walk is likely to include a tour of Capitol, Excelsior, New Empire, Edward Theatre, and Liberty. However, the actual cinemas included on the day of the tour may vary slightly and will be the sole discretion of the organiser.
We recommend you carry rain gear, fluids for hydration and a handy camera to capture the best of this walk.
