Food Served in Cinema Hall: In a Supreme Court hearing today, the judges asked, “Should we start bringing jalebis to the movies?”
There was a petition asking for a ban on food from outside at cinemas. Supreme Court rules that movie theaters and multiplexes can set their own rules and decide whether to let outside food and drinks in.
Chief Justice DY Chandrachud and Justice PS Narasimha tossed out an order from the Jammu and Kashmir High Court that let people bring their own food and water into theaters.
Cinemas aren’t gyms where you need healthy food. They’re entertainment places. They’re private property, so the owners get to decide. There’s nothing wrong with stating arms aren’t allowed or that there can’t be any discrimination on the basis of caste or gender. But how can the High Court say they can bring food into cinemas?”
According to the judges, the High Court overstepped its brief and already ordered cinemas to provide free food and clean water, especially for kids. Watching a movie is up to the viewer, but once they enter the cinema hall, they have to follow the rules.
As soon as the judges tried to explain that point, the argument took a hilarious turn.
When someone gets jalebis inside the cinema, the management can stop them. But if he wipes his sticky fingers on the seats, who pays for cleaning? People can also bring tandoori chicken. People might complain about bones in the hall. That could bother them too. “No one is forcing people to buy popcorn,” Chandrachud said.
I’m okay with free water being provided at movie theatres, but if they’re selling nimbu paani for $20, you can’t say I’ll go buy it outside and squeeze it inside.”
As Bombay High Court Chief Justice, he heard a case about adult films shown on TV after 11pm.
“We wanted adults to watch these films after the kids went to bed,” he said.
“I asked the judge if he’d ever watched a movie after 11 pm. He said no, that’s too late,” the Chief Justice grinned. Children stay up late, both judges said.
The Jammu and Kashmir High Court set aside a ban on food and drinks from outside in movie theaters on July 18, 2018. The High Court said people are forced to eat whatever is sold at the theatre because of the ban.
