Cinemas Of India By Sabine Haubitz + Stefanie Zoche

Words

As a testimony to the rich cinematic culture of South India, German photographers Sabine Haubitz + Stefanie Zoche documented the vibrantly-colored façades and abstract architectural facets of movie theaters.

They state: “We are particularly interested in the culturally influenced reinterpretation of modern building style apparent in the architectural style which displays an unusual mixture of modernism, local architectural elements, a strong use of color and, in the case of some older cinema halls, of art deco.”
