The Multiplex in India

I have a longstanding interest in audiences for Indian films and their formation within particular exhibition networks, economies and environments. To date, my research has encompassed dispersed transnational audiences for playback media, crossover audiences in the festival circuit and cinema audiences in different parts of the world. As part of this wider interest in exhibition, I have studied the multiplex format in detail at a national and local level in India. My primary sites of study to date have been the cities of Bangalore, Vadodora and New Delhi, where I will be conducting additional fieldwork this year.
