Another theater bites the dust

The Puttana Chitramandira in the Jayanagar Shopping Complex has closed since yesterday. Named in honour of the famous Kannada movie director of the 70s and 80s, Puttana Kanagal, the theatre had turned the corner last year and made a surplus of Rs. 3 lakhs. The theatre was being managed by the Karnataka Film Industry Development Corporation which itself was wound down last year. Subsequently the city corporation also washed its hands off and the theatre screened its last show on Thursday.
