Where To Catch Bollywood Films In Los Angeles

Saadia Ahmed

Hindi cinema is more popularly known as Bollywood, a blend between Bombay (the former name for Mumbai) and Hollywood. Bollywood is one of the largest film producers in India, and its movies are popular among both South Asians and non-South Asians residing in the Los Angeles, California area. Fortunately, fans do not have to rely solely on Netflix for their Bollywood fix, as these select LA theatres play recent Hindi film releases.
