But rather, I’m wondering what’s the hold-up with the East coast cinemas of the Big chain that Reliance Capital has bought, for the purpose of screening Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and other films in areas with large South Asian populations.
They’ve already done a soft launch in California, and were due to start their openings in the New York / New Jersey area by now, but it’s gone eerily silent and nary a word from the folks at Reliance as to why.
I guess maybe the paint’s still drying in some places…
Update: Just heard today (May 28) that the Columbia Park 12 in North Bergen will start showing “one or two” Indian films in about six weeks’ time. This is indeed an interesting development, given that this was the location of the departed Cineplaza, which shut down last summer.
