Sabine Haubitz + Stefanie Zoche – Indian Movie Theatres

In three journeys between 2010 and 2013 Sabine Haubitz + Stefanie Zoche  have photographed movie theatres from the ‘Thirties to the ‘Seventies in South India.

“The photos of these buildings give eloquent testimony to the rich cinematic culture of those times. We are particularly interested in the culturally influenced reinterpretation of modern building style apparent in the architectural style, which displays an unusual mixture of Modernism, local architectural elements, a strong use of colour and, in the case of some older cinema halls, of Art Deco.”
