What is the Open Air Theatre used for?

Created by Kiran A, Modified on Thu, 15 Dec 2022 at 05:26 PM by Kiran A

Our Open Air Theatre is inspired by the Roman amphitheatre with a similar design and a seating capacity of 6000. We gather there every Saturday at 8pm for a movie screening, in which a movie of choice is projected onto a massive wall by a 2K Digital projector.

The way we choose the movies is also pretty interesting. It's a democratic process, and surveys are circulated in which students vote for the next movie that should be screened! 

The OAT is also the venue of many pro-shows during Saarang and Shaastra, and has seen many electric performances from artists including KK, Shaan, Shankar Ehsaan-Loy, Udit Narayan, Sonu Nigam and Sunidhi Chauhan, and even international artists like Marnik, AronChupa and Maddix!
