Leh, August 22 (SocialNews.XYZ) Actor Pankaj Tripathi shared his thoughts on installing an inflatable theater in Leh (Ladakh) by Picturetime Digiplex, a mobile digital cinema company.
He said, “What a great initiative. Cinema is reaching people in the interior of this country. To someone like me who belongs to the world of cinema, it comes across as a unique and different way of showing films – ‘A theater. in motion. ‘To have a concept like this in a beautiful place like Leh, it’s absolutely amazing. “
Installed at a height of 11,562 feet, this theater becomes the first moving cinema in the Union Territory of Ladakh.
On Sunday, the inflatable theater was installed on the grounds of the NSD in Leh. While the event’s guest of honor was Thupstan Chewang, president of the Ladakh Buddhist Association, actor Pankaj Tripathi was the guest of honor.
A short film titled ‘Sekool’ (a film about the Changpa nomads of Ladakh) directed by Stenzin Tankong was screened at the launch of the theater which received an enthusiastic reception. The director and cast of the film were also in attendance.
A special screening of the recently released film ‘Bell Bottom’ will also take place later in the evening for the military and the CISF.
Offering digital projection of movies on a big screen with Dolby 5.1 surround sound in DCI claim mode, these billowing speakers can seat around 150 people. Given the current Covid protocol, the theater will currently have around 75 seats with an appropriate distance between theater seats and dividers between seats due to the need for social distancing time.
It will also be an ambient control theater using a state of the art heating installation inside the inflatable enclosure.
Sushil Chaudhary, Founder and CEO of Picturetime Digiplex, says, “The vision has always been to reach the entertainment black spots of this country. Ladakh has been missing a big screen cinema for quite some time and I have always wanted to bring in a multiplex cinema viewing experience for people here. I am very grateful to the government of Ladakh for trusting us. We aim to install two fixed cinema screens and one mobile cinema screen in Ladakh within the next thirty days, and the citizens of Ladakh will also have access to recently released films. “
Shedding more light on what the presence of these cinemas means for Ladakh and its citizens, Thupstan Chewang, President of the Ladakh Buddhist Association, says: “It has always been a very popular destination for film shoots. As you all know, Ladakh is one of the most isolated regions in the country. We are mostly cut off from the rest of the country for half the year, so having a source of entertainment in the form of movies is of great value to all of us. “
“After the pandemic it became all the more difficult for people to leave their homes and even though thanks to digital media people had access to entertainment. We hope that through these inflatable mobile theaters we can watch all the good and the latest content that is going on, ”he concludes.
