About this submission
The Roxy Cinema in Chowringhee Place has been one of the most popular single screen theatres in the city of Kolkata. Once an opera house, it converted into the cinemas in the early 40s. The premises have now been taken over by Kolkata Municipal Corporation as their lease has ended. Having seen its share of glory and success, the legacy of Roxy is now close to its end. The old Roxy now stays still, waiting for the time when Chowringhee Place will breathe without its existence.
