The best cinema experience in India. Right from the well mannered staff at the parking lot, ticket counter, the staff scanning bags, food counters. The best cold coffee, buttery butter popcorn and vegetable puff. It just makes the movie experience so special. The fuel card system is convenient to book tickets. Please maintain these standards always.

The best place in Chennai to watch movies, especially considering the cheap tickets on offer. Better ambience and movie watching experience than almost any other place in the city. Do try the caramel popcorn, an experience in itself. Don't miss this place
