By far a terrific movie experience at this place. The sound and the seating is by far amongst the best here. Also one can raise a shout to the attendants in case you feel uncomfortable with people chatting or using cell phones during a movie. Special mention for the popcorn. The option to add your own seasoning is one of... More

I always prefer Sathyam over other theaters.It has agood parking space. The theatre experience will be great in any screen you watch irrespective of it's a small or big screen. The sound effects will be amazing . The snacks are costly as in any premium theatre but very good. Sathyam popcorn has a specialty of being fresh

Sathyam cinemas in Royapettah is considered as mother of theatres in Chennai. Excellent theatre with subtitles for English and Hindi movies. Ticket are priced maximum at 120 RS, except for 3D movies(as of December 2016). Popcorns with seasoning is a class here. Ample parking space along with gaming zone Blur here.
