Almost two months after it downed shutters, Santacruz's preview theatre Lightbox, owned by Farhan Akhtar and his production partner Ritesh Sidhwani, is bustling with celebs again. In the first event at the theatre this year, the makers of Rangoon hosted a special screening for Kareena Kapoor Khan. Interestingly, the film stars her ex-flame Shahid Kapoor, apart from Saif Ali Khan and Kangana Ranaut.

It was rumoured that Farhan and Ritesh were forced to shut down Lightbox due to monetary hiccups. However, a source close to them blamed it on permission issues with the building that also houses other commercial establishments. Whether industry folk helped resurrect their favourite movie theatre or the building owners got a nod from the civic authorities is yet to be ascertained.
