    One look at London’s cinema listings, and you are wonder-struck at the sheer number of films Londoners devour every week. More than 120 movies are showing in London’s theatres at any given day, and about 80 films release there every week.

    London cinemas screen almost everything under the sun, including classics, world cinema, short films, and Bollywood. BFI Southbank (located on Belvedere Road) is a big name for serious movie buffs. BFI Southbank was formerly called the National Film Theatre, is operated by the British Film Institute, and is also known for its screening of classics and foreign cinema. It also hosts the London Film Festival.

    BFI IMAX, meanwhile, is the biggest screen in Britain. It is over 20 metres high and 26 metres wide, has 11,600 watts of digital surround sound, and seats 500. BFI also takes credit for being home to London’s smallest screen: the BFI South bank Studio has just 38 seats. Apollo Piccadilly Circus, Odeon Mezzanine, and Empire Leicester are other small-capacity cinemas.

    Art movie connoisseurs need no introduction to Curzon, an art-house cinema chain has 6 cinemas across London. Independent films are patronized by Curzon as well.

    Odeon Cinemas is one of the largest chain of cinemas in Europe, and has about 26 cineplexes in London. The Odeon West End in Leicester Square has hosted the London Film Festival for many years.

    Another popular name to reckon with for cinemas is Riverside Studios, located on the banks of the River Thames (Hammersmith, London). Riverside is known for its double-bill screenings of foreign language and independent films. It hosts foreign language film festivals, too.

    There are places where you can watch a movie child-free (at the Over 18s screenings), and places (for e.g., he Electric, Rio, Picturehouse, Rue, Odeon) where you can watch a film with a baby.

    If Hindi movies are your staple, then head to the Himalaya Palace, Southall, Upton Park Boleyn, Harrow Safari or Willesden Belle Vue; or any of Cineworld’s cinemas at Feltham, Staples Corner or Ilford.

    Interestingly, there are increasingly more things to do in London at the cinemas, than merely watch films. You now get to breathe in some culture in the city’s cinema halls some being Odeon, Curzon Cinemas and BFI – which have started screening opera and ballet. In fact, the Royal Opera House has launched a venture that will see some ballet and opera performances being screened in over 700 cinemas worldwide.

    No new technology or device can replicate the joy of watching a movie on a 70mm screen. The silver screen not only lights up a dark theatre but also brings new light to many peoples life. In India, there is a frenzied craze for movies. When a Shah Rukh Khan or a Rajnikant film brings a larger than life character on screen, the four corners of the country unite to cheer them. If cricket is considered the religion of India, the Indian film industry is definitely the heart of all Indians! With the advent of newer technologies, the joy of watching movie has increased manifold. Multiplexes have not only dotted the metropolitans but have also ushered in new aspirations and spirit into many second tier cities. Dehradun is one such city which got a new lease of life with the advent of multiplex cinemas such as PVR.
    PVR (Priya Village Roadshow) Cinemas is the largest cinema chain in India having its presence in many cities across the country. PVR Cinemas started the first multiplex in the country in Saket, Delhi thus bringing in a paradigm shift to the film viewing experience. Over more than a decade of its existence, the growth of PVR Cinemas has been exceptional and it has redefined movie watching with high class seating, state-of-the-art screens and audio-visual systems. A quick search on Dehradun business listings shows that the Himalayan city has two PVR theatres- Glitz Cinema and SilverCity. Both the movie theatres have raised the benchmark of movie theatres in Dehradun.
    The rise of new age cinema theatres is the result of the growth of Dehradun real estate. After it became the capital of a newly formed state craved out of Uttar Pradesh, Dehradun became the epicenter of development in the higher ranges of the Himalayas. Because of its proximity to Delhi, Dehradun has fast experienced change in the form of more investment in real estate, in IT, education etc. Dehradun schools were always known for their standard and excellence and with newer players entering the market, the competition just got stiffer. Due to all these reasons, jobs in Dehradun also saw an up rise with more and more youth staying back home. The result of the growth of Dehradun real estate has also been the growth of malls and movie theatres- two of which are Glitz Cinema and SilverCity.
    Both the PVRs boast of excellent infrastructure (something that is new to Doon) and both enhances the movie watching experience. While Glitz Cinemas is located in The City Junction Mall, Near ISBT, Haridwar Bypass Road, Dehradun, SilverCity is located in 542, Rajpur Road, Parsvnath Eleganza Mall, Dehradun.
