In today’s episode of white people discovering culture super late, here is a Twitter thread on them coming across the Indian movie theatre experience and boy is it funny. And guess what movie it is? RRR! Of course, the crowd would go berserk. Take that Marvel.
Check out the Twitter thread:

Good commercial cinema is an art. The wonder, the grandeur, the theatrics: it projects a fantasy and transports the audience into an alternate reality. Very few films hold that can kind of power. RRR is one of the golden dozen.
The reactions to the screening of RRR are even better:

It's also a sincere movie about two Indian revolutionaries and how they kill the British and how it fucking rules, rather than some marvel soyface bullshit— R. B. Calzón (@b_calzon) July 17, 2022

Also it's literally a screening of RRR, if your theater isn't doing this then I'm not sure you're actually a real person. https://t.co/qvN1gxYO4P— dDx (@ddx_exe) July 18, 2022
