How they roll in the Dirty Jers.

Pooja emailed me this piece from the NYTimes about a theater in New Jersey that features predominately Indian films. Pretty interesting. Here's the intro:

Swollen ticket lines, shouting children, tempers rising as the movies sold out: This was any suburban multiplex during the holidays.

But different.

Vada pav sandwiches and mango kulfi were sold at the concession stand. Conversations were in Gujarati or Hindi. A poster in the lobby advertised an action film starring Aishwarya Rai on one of six screens showing Indian cinema.

There's nothing revolutionary about the article but it's a nice little "slice of life." [And a great photo!]
