GUWAHATI, Jan 5 – At a time when film industry of Assam is going through a bad phase, the Gold Digital Cinema group has come up with an elaborate plan to construct 20 new mini cinema halls in different districts of the State.
Addressing a press conference here, director of Gold Digital Cinema, North East, Rajib Kumar Bora said that the project of constructing nine air-conditioned mini cinema halls have already been started at nine places of the State – Dhemaji, Lakhimpur, Biswanath Chariali, Tezpur, Mangaldoi, Chhayagaon, Sivsagar, Jakhalabandha and Golaghat.
“Now, we have a plan to start similar projects in other parts of the country, which would definitely help in reviving the ailing film industry of the State. The main idea behind starting the project on a massive scale is to bring an overall revival in the field of screening of films through mini cinema halls, which would attract the audience once again towards cinema halls. We would provide modern facilities to the audience at a minimal cost in such halls,” he said.
The future plans of Gold groups include making an Assamese film. “Cultural activists Zubeen Garg and Sanjeev Narayan are actively involved in this project,” he said, seeking the support of the State government and the common people in this regard.
