Situated in Central Delhi's Connaught Place, the theatre was designed by architect Walter Skyes George and opened in 1932. It has hosted personalities like then Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru, his
daughter Indira Gandhi and megastar Amitabh Bachchan. The owners are planning to return as a multiplex but they say they are still in talks and it may take them a year or so to start the renovation.
It's the end of an era for Delhi movie-goers.
