3PM- Hotel pick up

We will take you for a behind the camera experience of what goes into making a cinema. From the light man to the spot boy to the camera person to the artists themselves, you will be shown what goes behind creating a scene in the movie. This is where all the action happens!

The highlight of this tour is that you will get to meet and interact with an actor as well as technicians. This is an escorted tour and a guide will be with you throughout the tour. 

Noon- Tamil cinema boasts of the oldest studios in the country. We will visit one of the predominant studios to take a look at some of the sets made for movies.

430PM- Nothing is more exciting than visiting a theater in Chennai! We will visit one of the oldest theaters in the city and have a look at the projector room which will give an insight into the technicalities of the big screen.

630PM- A Tamil movie is incomplete without song and dance! We will visit a  dance studio where you get to see how Tamil songs are being choreographed. You will have a whale of a time learning a step or two from the dance master.

8PM- Drop back to hotel
