This Building holds a unflushed memory of Tabora when it comes to Cinema. It was all about Diamond Talkies. One said the incharge of the Cinema was Mzee Prakash Mehta. For me I just remember the Mzee Makwaya who was at the Gate, a gate keeper and the Bubu who was an incharge of security. (A no non sense old man who was from uhuru Street at Chemchem).
It was at this Cinema hall that we developed intrest of watching movies. Good movies so to speak. At that time movies were like Mr India, Insaaf ki-pukar, Mother India, Amar Akbar Anthon, Gayaar, Adhnat se majboor, Andhar Kanoon, Mr Natwalrlar; Hum Tere Aashiq hain; Inspector Eagle; Manzil and more others. ((sorry for spelling just bear with me but just get the message) Thanks Tabora network for the picture. Were were you by the way during 1970s and 1980s.
The Good thing about Indian films of those days (am not sure with the contemporary films since am no longer watching more movies) was that highest level of creativities and innovations made in the scripts and movies themselves. today a lot of annimations and 3D computer works in the graphic which rendered me out of apetite.
Old movies from both continents were so cute try and get a copy and you at least appreate what am trying to deliver to you without intending to become boarisis. (Boarer)
