Motivation for www.films.lk
The Sinhala Cinema was inaugurated with the release of the Sinhala Film 'Kadawunu Poronduwa' at Kingsley Cinema - Colombo on 21.01.1947. This industry is not just an entertainment media it holds far more importance to our country as a representation of the nation, its victories, drawbacks and the true feelings of our people. The artists and their creations are considered as national treasures that should be preserved for our future generations.
Cinema is a media that entertain people, the creations and the creators live in people’s hearts. The information associated with Cinema industry should be accessible to every one.
This industry is not controlled under a single institution or a government body so the information is scattered through its artists, different institutions and organizations.
So the best way to preserve these valuable information and memories will be to create a database archive which not only store the information, but provide easy access to every one including fans and professionals, and also collect information from various sources with out the control of a single institution or a person.
The latest information on up coming movies and cinema hall schedules for the currently displaying movies are advertised using news papers or bill boards around cinema halls. So it isn’t easy for a fan to find the correct movies schedules for a desired cinema hall or a city. In many other countries all the movie schedules are made available in websites. They can access this information instantly through internet using a PC or even mobile phones.
After considering the above mentioned problem space the Web Based Information System for the Cinema Industry (www.films.lk) was developed in order to provide an effective solution.
