Nishat Cinema

So, I went to Nishat cinema last night to see War of the Worlds. You can read my review of the movie at my blog. Here I’ll just say few words about the cinema.

Well, the show was sold out. I was in the grand circle that costs Rs. 100. The public was decent and there were lots of girls and ladies (little unusual for Pakistani cinema, I think). During the show there was a little booing and stuff but overall it was a pleasent experience. The sound system of the cinema was not the best. I would have enjoyed it more if it sounded better, since the movie was loaded with computer graphics and sound effects.

People are watching this movie because it’s newly released. This is the first time a latest movie has come to Pakistani cinema. Usually when movies come to cinemas, most of the people have already seen it on DVDs. This time it’s different so people are loving to watch it on big screen. There should be more cinemas to play latest hollywood movies. It will certainly make a nice source of entertainment for Karachiites.

    It is more of a concern as to ability to afford screening a new movie and royalties etc. And sorry but women are not an uncommon sight at Nishat Cinema at least. Try being a student of IBA: your question will answered. We always tried to watch a movie in matinee time: between morning and eening classes.

    i don’t think this was the first time a new movie was shown. i’ve been to the screenings of shrek and another movie(can’t remember the name) that were shown only a few days after their worldwide premier.

    it’s pretty cool though. the crowd is nice and decent.
