Introduction: Cinema means ‘moving picture’. The cinematograph was invented by the famous American scientist Thomas Alva Edison. It is a great gift of science. In cinema, a series of pictures are thrown on a screen by a machine.
How and Where Cinemas are Produced: For a cinema, a series of photos are taken on a ribbon called a film. There are special cameras to take pictures of things. Taking pictures is very expensive. Sometimes it is necessary to go to different places to take pictures of real things. Sometimes artificial objects stand for real things and photos of them are taken. Films are produced extensively in India, America and England. To illustrate the facts of novels and plays, the film company engages good actors and actresses. Earlier cinema pictures were silent but now we can hear the voice of actors and actresses.
Utility: We can know many things in the cinema. It is not possible to go and see all the great things in the world but we can see real pictures of those things in cinemas. We can know the history, manners, and customs of different countries through cinema. Cinema has a great instructive value also. Through talkies, we can hear lectures on many important topics. Cinema is also a source of enjoyment. It entertains us. Therefore, it has become very popular. Today, there is hardly any city that does not have a cinema hall. Besides, it is a source of monetary income also. America and England are making a lot of money by producing films. This is a very useful art indeed.
Abuses: Along with the good sides, cinema has some bad sides also. It can be a source of the downfall of young men. Not all pictures are good. Some photos cause a lot of harm to the students. Not all pictures are viewable by students. Bad photos can spoil their character. Moreover too much of seeing cinema fall a bad effect on our eyesight. Too much viewing of cinema turns its viewer into a cinema addict which is not a good sign for us.
Conclusion: While enjoying a cinema we should be very cautious about its bad sides and try to avoid cinemas which may fall bad effects on us. 0 0 0
