Would advise a movie goer getting there by car to be there at least 30 minutes early to avoid the long queue especially during the evenings on weekends or for the big movie launches.... More

1. If you park inside the Satyam cinemas complex, they charge Rs.40 for car and they also have free parking near Express Avenue mall. Parking inside the complex is an open parking with amazing parking structure in small place, they make sure no much struggle while parking and while going out. 2. Restrooms are good and very well maintained. 3.... More

Been there to watch telugu movie "temper". Studio 5 is in 4th floor, means, most of us have to use the small-small lifts available there. Space between rows of seats is very small. While there are no complaints regarding parking, food, wash rooms etc, Studio5 is does not meet the expectations of Satyam brand.

Lots of people, screens, movies, eats...needs some organizing with parking and signage. But, the staff is helpful and the seating and sound makes up for it.
