Okay, here’s the first odd from my side!
Which is a sort of a blast from the past also.
Back in the days when city of Karachi had more cinemas than shopping arenas, the local newspapers always dedicate one full page of their daily copy for the currently showing and upcoming attractions of local and B-grade foreign flicks.
I found this old copy of local newspaper, dated back to March 1991, in an old trunk at my home one day.
This is odd in a sense because there are no more cinemas in Karachi. Shopping arenas with multiplexes are now standing tall and wide over those long gone cinemas, whose names were literally known to almost everyone in the city back in their heydays.
Names like Bambino, Regal, Nishat, Reno, Jubilee, Prince, Lyric, Star, Nashemun, Godin, Regent, Afshan, Roxy, Revoli provided cheap entertainment to countless in those days.
I was just a kid back then and the flicks weren’t kid-friendly, so I never saw one on the big screen.
