Vishnu Rewind – Vellore’s 1st Rewind Movies Initiative

Vishnu Rewind

Vishnu Rewind is an initiative by Sri Vishnu Cinemas Vellore to screen old movies back in big screens. Missed watching cult movies on big screens? Then yes, this one is for you.

Throwback Series:

A couple of years back Sathyam Cinemas or popularly called as SPI Cinemas was the first one to bring this. They started screening big movies back from the past to give the audience a delightful experience of the famous movie that they missed watching in the big screens. Few movies like Avatar and Batman gained huge foot fall when they were re-released. Following that Super star’s movies like Sivaji and Badsha were converted digitally and screened all over Tamil Nadu.

These throwback series gained traction especially during the Producer council strike and also during the absence of good movies to fill those gaps. Small movie theatre owners started it back recently as there weren’t any big hits apart from Viswasam and Petta which were released in January. Ranging from Batman to Aayirathil Oruvan, movie fans have also started requesting for a lot of their favourite movies.

Vishnu Rewind:

Sri Vishnu Cinemas in Vellore is the very first one to kickstart this initiative in the name of Vishnu Rewind. Notably, they are the first multiplex in Vellore. They run a poll over social media to get the movie recommendations from their fans. And based on those results, they release the movies. Started with Batman Dark Knight Rises, they are currently screening ‘Pudhupettai’ this weekend which is already running housefull. So one might wonder if that’s a FDFS show or a rewind show as the audience could be seen hooting and whistling.

Some of the under rated movies like Aayirathil Oruvan, Anbe Sivam and few more are in the list. So its going to be a very good entertainment for the movie buffs out there.
