Remnants of Single-Screen Cinema Signs in Delhi for Paper Planes

Over on Paper Planes, I wrote about the very personal story of how I began looking out for and documenting the decrepit signs of single-screen cinemas in Delhi about five years ago, and about some of my favourites from the lot. I also drew an illustration of the now-lost façade of Paras Cinema. Read my essay here.

Thank you to Fabiola Monteiro for inviting me to contribute to Local Attractions, a most wonderful series of essays about discovering and rediscovering our cities and neighbourhoods, and to Mila Samdub for sharing a photo of one of the concrete pieces of the façade that he saved from the demolition — the illustration would have been impossible without it.
