Kolkata gets India’s first aquatic theatre

December 17, 2013

Have you ever dreamt of watching a film in an aquatic cinema hall, where the fountains act as the screen? In case you did, your dreams will soon come true. Very soon you will be able to experience the joy of watching a film under the starry night sky, in the city of joy.

Eco Park in Rajarhat is going to present the largest floating fountain in India for light and sound show and will double up as a movie screen. Towards the end of December, West Bengal’s chief minister is going to inaugurate several new addendums to the Eco Park; the list includes this fountain.

The fountain will nearly be 90 m in height, built without any foundation or permanent structure. It will be used for light and sound shows every day. Occasionally, high-density movies will be screened by back projection.

According to HIDCO, this special fountain will be inaugurated on 27th December. The chief minister will attend a special screening of the film ‘Chander Pahar’ on the day of inauguration.

According to Debasis Sen, the Chairman cum Managing Director of HIDCO, “The fountain project was the chief minister’s brainchild; the fountain is being constructed under HIDCO’s supervision. The jutted out machine parts above water may not look good in the broad daylight, so we are taking steps to cover it in a beautiful manner.”

However, films will not be screened on a regular basis initially and light and sound shows will be the prime attraction. Nevertheless, this will be a great new year’s gift for the people of Kolkata.
