This is one of the old movie theater. Screening quality and sound quality are good. The best advantage of the theater is, it is just beside the main road.

This used to a fine cinema house in central kolkata, but with passing time and the management being so incompetent that the hall has lost it's grandeur and is merely standing as an old building now.

It is a very old theater. It is one of the landmark of Kolkata. Earlier days the legendary magician Lt.P.C.Sarkar performed his magic show in this hall.
