That is the term for the India Cinema. We went to see Delhi 6 which is a relatively new movie. The theater was beautiful (no pictures allowed inside). Built in 1976 and immaculately maintained. They have reserved seating with different prices for different seats. I splurged on popcorn for a small bag which was really not all that small for all of forty cents!! Of course, the movie was in Indie. Some were able to follow along pretty well. I, on the other hand, was pretty much clueless. The movie started with a few advertisements and there was a 10 minute intermission. There is talking during the movie - children are there crying. Of course, since I couldn't understand the movie it really didn't matter that I couldn't hear the dialogue! :-) The most interesting part was at the end when you could tell the movie was coming to an end but not quite over - about 5 minutes remaining. Several people stood up and apparently said something like "OK, it's over, let's go" and about one-third of the people just up and walked out! How weird in that? Oh, and I met my first Muslim in the theater - sitting right in front of us were three young men, just as nice as they could be. Could hardly understand them though. Most speak pretty good English.
