|Alka Talkies, Lakdi Pul, Pune.|
These theatres themselves came to be called "Talkies" based on what they screened. Even now you can tell a autorikshaw taxi driver to take you to "Alka Talkies". ( Its pronounced "taakies", I didnt realize where the word came from until many years later.). In the intermission of the movie you could buy greasy spicy crunchy samosas. At your seat. Then throw the scrunched up wrapper at the screen if you didnt like what was happening in the movie. This kind of behaviour was the purview of the cheap non balcony seated rascals. Enviable.
