With the Last two shows of the Legend Raj Kapoor, Regal theater has stepped forward to become a part of the History. The theater was built in the year 1932 and its prominent visitors included Lord Mountbaton, PT Jawahar Lal Nehru, Amitabh Bachhan and the Legend Raj Kapoor himself.
As usual, even today the picture hall displayed the House Full board, as all the tickets of this cinema hall were sold out. Today is the last day of this theater in Delhi as its being closed for a new beginning. I remember the movie that i had seen in this hall after my marriage, years ago, and a song in the movie was - छोड़ आए हम......, वो गलियाँ.......
Its expected that soon it will be converted into a multiplex and if reports are to be believed, its first floor will have the world famous Madame Tussauds wax museum. Therefore, we can say that its not only the end of an era, but also a beginning of the new era.
