I have been to a lot of cinemas in India and abroad, trust me none come even close . I always wonder how on earth such a idea and creativity can be executed and maintained in Chennai. Highlights are amazing themed cinemas, awesome food shouldn't miss caramel popcorn, chicken burger, and fresh ice creams. Food is served inside the hall... More

A luxurious movie watching experience at just 110/- per person. The entire area make is of a different class itself. The interiors with wood, the lighting and the servicing is up a notch than all places across. Tip _ try the butter popcorn and the sweet bun

I frequently visit this theater to watch movies. I like wide screen and crystal clear surround sound. Delicious pop corns are my favourite! But their toilets are not maintained and smell bad. Parking is expensive. But try to reach after 9.30 pm. You will be charged flat Rs.20 per hour.

The movie was Bhajrangi Bhaijan, good and would have been the same where ever I would have watched it. But Thanks a lot to the theatre staff, cleanliness and hospitality was wonderful, service and assistance was far beyond any other cinema I have visited in India and abroad. Thanks to the Mngr Mr.Hema Kumar for everything, definitely my best choice... More
