Well-known member
dont know how many are oldies here to remember this safire, emerald & blue diamond theatre complex in mount road

in blue diamond the show was a continuous performance . means one can take a ticket and stay put through out

all were screening only english movies

i remember all vividly very well and when the buildings gradulaly became extinct it was painful



Yes, I remember those three theatres very well and have seen movies like Hatari and such movies which were screened there. Blue Diamond was the screen which showed continuous shows. They were the landmark of that area. Now the space is lying vacant and waiting for some construction.
