A peak inside the old Edward Theater at Kalbadevi. I remember coming here as a child and even then it seemed like a secret hidden spot in bustling Mumbai. Eggshell blue and white the building has somehow miraculously survived in our built up crazy metropolis.
There is a charm to this theater that was built in the 1800’s it still functions as a cinema but has the feeling of an old opera house. Once a venue for theater it has an orchestra pit, green room, box seats and all.
We even climbed to the highest seats in the house perched in the vertiginous reaches of the upper balcony,not for the faint hearted for sure !
Although rundown and a little worse for ware, with a little (lot’s of ) TLC this could become a hot south Mumbai spot !
