A Living Portrait of India
|India Heritage:Performing Arts:Cinema In India:History:The Pioneers|
Film activity shifted to Madras in 1905 when Swamikannu Vincent organized his touring cinema. He travelled throughout South India with a projector and films, providing a synchronized sound effect by combining the movie projector and a gramaphone.
Thanks to Vincent, Bombay and Calcutta were no longer the
only cities with their very own cinema shows.
