Theater halls across Tamil Nadu will decidedly let go off the late night shows in the future. The reason being cited – there is hardly any crowd packing up the halls during these late hours. The night shows are avoided by the ladies as it’s not considered safe to venture out during this time.
The 4 show format followed till now in Tamil Nadu includes the morning show at 12:00, the matinee at 3 p.m, the evening show at 6:30 and the night show at 10:00 .With winters around these days there isn’t much Maths to be done over the collections from the 10’o clock shows that are put up for a selected few. A suggestion being made is to shift the timings a little early. The schedule followed in cities like Bangalore includes a morning show at 11 a.m, the matinees at 2 p.m., evening shows at 4 p.m. and the night show for an early 7:00 p.m.The Theater Union is planning to stick to these timings, keeping in sync with the neighboring regions.
That’s almost a 3 hour shift, for the night.
