Cinema in Karachi or Kariwood (Urdu: کاری وڈ) had its golden days in 1960s when some of the prominent film studios were located in Karachi, making films for the viewership of a large and growing working-class population.
With a metropolitan area hosting South Asia's second most populated city, the film viewership is still popular in Karachi. However, the interest has shifted more towards the Hollywood and other international productions. One of the reasons for the shifting trends is attributed to the moving of film-making industry to Lahore, locally termed as Lollywood.

Famous quotes containing the word cinema:
“Talking about dreams is like talking about movies, since the cinema uses the language of dreams; years can pass in a second and you can hop from one place to another. Its a language made of image. And in the real cinema, every object and every light means something, as in a dream.”
—Frederico Fellini (19201993)
