The way we consume entertainment is gradually evolving into a solitary and stationary activity. No longer do you feel the need to go anywhere: it all comes straight to you — whether it’s food to the table, movies and music, or football and cricket matches to the small screen. You can summon art exhibitions, occasionally in 3-D, on your laptops or mobile phones. Ted Talks are just a tap away. And you can enjoy family time, live, on WhatsApp — even from the far corners of the globe. But some of the inherent magic of entertainment, particularly of cinema, evaporates when it enters your home, having been made to share the ‘moment’ and space with pizzas and burgers and sodas ordered in. -Verve Magazine
