Cinemas Quotes:

My dad occupied a government position, deputy collector, in a city called Nainital, so we had access to the cinemas at any time. I saw my first movies when I was very young.

Naseeruddin Shah

In my youth, cinemas showed two films in one day. I used to watch both of them. It may sound strange, but ‘West Side Story’ was the only musical I liked. I didn’t like musicals, or films with songs, at all. I always thought they were not real, that the songs sounded a little bit false. But in the case of ‘West Side Story,’ things were different.

After the Revolution in ’49, all the films were propaganda. They serviced the government and carried the message that the government wants to relay to the people. But I think, in the last 10 years, because the film market is opening and there’s an expansion of all the cinemas in China, it’s now a lot like Hollywood productions.

Wong Kar-wai

If you look at Disney’s slate compared to the other Hollywood studios, it stands out because of big titles and strong franchise films which also extend beyond cinemas, to merchandising or theme parks given the legacy of the four brands – Disney, Pixar, Marvel and now Lucasfilm.

People think that cartoons are meant to be watched on television and not in cinemas. To get people into cinemas to see animation really boils down to storytelling for the family.

Ronnie Screwvala

In the ’80s, when I was watching Bond films in the cinemas, Roger Moore was the man. I’ll always have a soft spot for him. His Bond films were light-hearted and silly as well as action-packed. For me, this spoke volumes. It meant that, someday, maybe someone like me with a whacky sense of humour could be James Bond.

Rhys Darby

I would love nothing more than me and my family getting green cards, going to L.A. for a year, sitting down with the big Hollywood studios and coming up with the most advanced and awesome Internet distribution platform for movies. It would make Hollywood more money than cinemas, DVDs, and everything else combined.

If you want to do what you want to do, you cannot work. So art is going to be finished, and this is the will of the Islamic republic: to not have any artists or art and close the doors of all the cinemas and music and everything.

Golshifteh Farahani

For the last 30 years our cinemas have been ruled by science fiction and horror. We’ve had some very good Fantasy films in that time period, but for my tastes I still haven’t seen fantasy done to absolute perfection. That is the hope I have in this project.

Harry Knowles

Foreign capital to build new cinemas will help modernize China’s aging cinema infrastructure, attract Chinese consumers back into cinemas, and increase demand for U.S. films.

Jack Valenti

Sadly, cinemas with film as the primary source are disappearing. We need to remain open to change. That does not require one to divorce the past but to respect and process both the present and the future.

Robert Richardson

It is said that anyone who does commercial cinema is not acting, and anyone who does an art film is acting. I don’t believe it. I feel whenever you are doing a film, you are acting. So you need to be applauded for that. I won’t do art house cinemas. I want to make commercial films. I want my films to make money.

Bipasha Basu

The stage is one place where you come face to face with your audience, unlike cinemas where you cannot see the applause or the booing by the audience.


We spend more time at cinemas, theaters, art galleries and theme parks than we do at churches, and they have become our new cathedrals. We can spend hours at any of these places of entertainment but if church service goes on too long we get impatient.

Lauren Mayberry

I worked in a lot of cinemas when I was at college, and I’m a movie dork, and it’s a nice thing to do while you’re on tour. Everything is different a lot of the time – you’re never in the same place – but I like going to the cinema because it feels like no matter where you are, the experience is really the same.

Lauren Mayberry

Norway is a small country, about half the size of Sweden, but it has a very good film climate because they have municipal cinemas, so even in the smallest towns you have a cinema that shows art house films from all over the world.

Stellan Skarsgard

The distribution systems and the cinemas have adopted to the blockbusters, and they now get their main income from selling popcorn, and if you don’t make a film that sells popcorn, it’s very hard to get it out there.

Stellan Skarsgard

I’m of course disillusioned with what has happened to World cinema. Now cinemas in both Eastern and Western Europe are filled with the same blockbusters from Hollywood.

Alexander Walker

For me, those little cinemas in Paris where I saw many art films for the first time meant that cinema became a kind of pilgrimage site.
