"One Show Less" concerns itself with the increasing numbers of single-screen cinemas that are shutting down, all over the country. The film focuses on one theatre, Usha Talkies, whose spirited employees and raucous, seat-breaking public make it one of a kind. As the ticket seller puts it, this cinema is meant for the masses; the question raised is, are the masses to be deprived of the incomparable experience of the big screen? Through a series of evocative arguments put forth by the employees of Usha Talkies, a vivid portrait is painted of a unique way of life, which might soon become extinct.
