Night shows to go for good in Tamil Nadu


Theater owners have arrived at a decision to cancel all night shows following fewer crowds and also taking into account women’s safety.

Theaters all over Tamil Nadu conduct 4 shows daily.  The timing for shows is such that the morning show is at 12 noon, matinee show at 3 pm, evening show at 6.30 or 7 pm, and the night show at 10 or 10.30 pm.

In suburban places and villages there are three shows, one at 2.30 pm, another at 6.30 pm and the night show at 10.30 pm.

In hill places as Ooty, Kodaikanal and Yercaud there are no night shows.

Empty cinema halls

Interest among the public on night 10.30 show is slowly dwindling.  Most avoid booking night shows which get over by the odd hours. Particularly women avoid night shows on grounds of safety.

So the crowd has started dwindling particularly for night shows.  In many theaters just 4 or 5 people come for night show.

Since it is the winter many people avoid venturing out in the night.  The theaters are mostly empty for night show.  For multiplex theaters in Chennai alone, there is average crowd for night show.

Cancellation of night shows

Following this night shows have been cancelled in theaters all over Tamil Nadu.  The theater owners are contemplating over permanently cancelling night shows or changing the show timings as in Bangalore.

In Bangalore the show timings are such that the morning show is at 11 am, the matinee show at 2 pm, the evening show at 4 pm, and the night show at 7 pm.  Many theater union officials said that a similar decision has been made here in Tamil Nadu.
