“Not to be missed”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

If you have any time at all in Jaipur, see a movie at Raj Mandir. We met a Delhi couple there who helped us find our way through the ticket process (if there is a female in your group, she can stand in the ladies line and buy tickets for everyone - usually the shorter line).
The sculptural architecture is a sight to see and it seemed like everyone in the audience enjoyed the movie going experience as an event. (never mind that the movie was in Hindi so we couldn't understand a word and that there were babies screaming and cell phone use common!).

“Not a Touristy place anymore”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

Raj Mandir was a nice tourist place, but may be 1990's when there were no multiplexes, carpeted cinema halls, etc. Now there is just the lobby to see. Which definitely by cinema hall standards is quite grand - but you would just be wasting precious hours in Jaipur when there are several other places to visit!

“Once upon a time the Best Picture Hall of INdia”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

earlier Rajmandir was considered as the best cinema hall of India and people visiting Jaipur go there to see the property not the movie they are playing. even in recent times of multiplexes Rajmandir has not lost its charm among visitors but there are some problems as you have to stand in long queues to fetch a ticket as they dont have online ticket system. Security persons openly take bribes for tickets. although property from inside is very good and you can go there once.

“Great Experience”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

Lots of fun to watch a Hindi movie with locals. Super enthusiastic crowd and a nice old-style cinema. Go early to buy your ticket and shell out 100 rupees to sit a little further back. We didn't partake but heard the concession samosas were good.

“bollywood - every traveller must experience this at least once”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

book tickets in the morning if you want to see an evening session. there are so many locals going that tickets are at a premium. the experience reminded me of my childhood when films at the local bughouse elicited screams, shouts boos and cheers. A terrific experience.
