Chandigarh: A fire on Monday broke out in one of the oldest cinema halls located in the heart of city when the noon show was about to end.

No one was, however, injured in the fire that broke out due to short circuit at `Kiran` theatre, a fire brigade official said. The noon show of `We Are Family` was on when the flames erupted from behind the screen. Fire tenders immediately arrived at the cinema hall and put out the fire, he said.
As it was a minor fire, the next show started as usual at the cinema hall located in a highly congested area, theatre staff said.
