Metro mulling move

World Brief

Mumbai’s historic Metro theater may convert to a four-screen multiplex to take advantage of government breaks on taxes and electricity.

The 1938 art deco theater is listed by the Mumbai Heritage Conservation Committee, which prevents any changes to the exterior.

One of the four oldest cinemas in Mumbai, Metro initially screened only Hollywood movies. The first Bollywood movie premiered there was thesp Raj Kapoor’s “Bobby” in 1973.
