Should national anthem be played in cinema halls?

The national anthem is a source of pride for India and for Indians. But, why should it be played in cinema halls, where each week there is a dirty raunchy film playing on the screens? As soon as the national anthem ends, the movie begins, often with a sex joke or something equally inappropriate to get the audience’s attention. Is this what the national anthem should be associated with? And if it should be played in cinema halls, then why not before a play, or a concert, at malls, or at least before a Parliament session. Should the national anthem be associated with something so trivial as a movie in an attempt to force feed patriotism down the throats of people who are trying to hold the popcorn in one hand, trying to find their seat, all the while trying to calm down their children?
