Send us your story! Record yourself (important: all files should be .mp3 or .wav, please!) talking for no more than 10 minutes about your favorite Indian-film-going experiences in any place you've lived or visited. We suggest working off a script because it's a lot easier that way! Was your setting multiplex, single screen, old, new, boisterous, bored, overpriced, or bargain basement? Who else was there and what were they like? Has an audience ever surprised you? Has your behavior in the theater ever surprised you? And how were the snacks?
We'll post your stories as long as you keep sending 'em!* Amrita and Beth will kick the series off, and all stories will be linked back to this central page for the collection. In case you have a story to tell but don't know how to record, get in touch with us and we'll set it up for you!
Send your stories to bethlovesbollywood at gmail dot com.
* And do we need to tell you to keep your posts relatively clean and free of hate speech? Good.
