The Talkies of Bombay
“Screening one ‘All-talking dramatic hit’ after another, talkie houses took Bombay by storm in the 1930s. The latest Western Electric Sound Systems let audiences experience the thrills and chills of Frankenstein’s laboratory, as they screamed and squirmed in their rexine tip-up seats. Gone were the days of the silent pictures, where orchestras played in the pit to accompany the plot of a picture. Now every old theatre in Bombay was either shaping up with a sound system or shipping out to obscurity.”
We are thrilled to have collaborated with The Bombay Canteen on the 3rd Edition of their Cocktail Book, which doubles as a Guidebook to the Talkies of Bombay!
Join us for the Gala Launch of the Cocktail Book tonight at The Bombay Canteen or wait expectantly as we deliver a talkie to your inbox every week.
A daring collaboration with The Bombay Canteen and Please See.
