Probably one of the best moves ever by Sathyam theatre by opening Escape in one of the prime locations of the city even though its a stone's throw distance from Sathyam. One of the poshest film theaters I've ever seen. Far more better than the ones I've seen in London. Having a separate theme for each screen is a stupendous idea which needs a special mention. The snacks are good even though they are a bit on the pricey side. Staff are the friendliest in the entire Sathyam group which is never a doubt. Except the exuberant parking prices there is nothing negative about Escape Cinemas. Even though the parking is maintained by the mall and not the Sathyam at times it actually costs a ticket price just for it which is such a shame. Overall, its THE BEST theater in Tamilnadu. That includes even better than Sathyam.

Escape cinemas is situated at the top level of the best mall in Chennai- Express Avenue. Escape offers a brilliant movie experience. Both video and sound quality are top-notch. The sound especially is magnificent and you can feel the vibrations in your seat. Sound is very clear and dialogues can be easily understood. Escape now even displays subtitles for a few english, tamil and hindi movies. There are several screens located in the theatre. The 3D glasses provided are of superior quality and in one of the screens(Kites I think), they provide Dolby glasses which are amazing. The air-conditioning is very good. The food is superb as well and you get a wide variety, You have cold coffee, cream donut, popcorn, cool drinks, puffs, pizza, sandwiches, hot coffee, brownies, blackforest cakes, ice cream, chaat, etc. The seats are very comfortable. The seats are placed at a comfortable distance from the screen(even 2nd row is comfortable). The ambiance in the theatre is truly amazing. You feel like you've stepped into another world. The toilets are excellent and the best I've seen in Chennai(even compared to toilets in some malls I've seen in USA, Escape toilets are amazing). There are multiple touch screen computers located in front of the entrance where you can buy tickets using your card or you can just buy them from the several counters located inside the theatre. Online booking is also available. The best part about Escape Cinemas is that it is situated in Express Avenue(the best mall in Chennai) right opposite the food court. So you can catch a bite to eat before or after the movie or do some shopping. There are storage and locker facilities available in the theatre where you can store any shopping bags and other items and you can collect them after the movie.

Escape cinemas is a part of the Sathyam group of cinemas. Escape is my 2nd favourite theatre in Chennai(the 1st being the main Sathyam complex). In terms of movie experience, Escape cinemas is undoubtedly better than Sathyam but I prefer Sathyam as the food is slightly cheaper, it has cheaper parking and because of Blur. I recommend this theatre to everyone visiting Chennai.

My favorite screen at Escape is 'Plush'. I like 'Kites' too. 'Plush' as the name says, you really feel the luxury. The right ambience with appropriate seating makes your movie watching experience take up to the next level.

Excape is definitely a luxurious destination in Chennai for watching movies and dont forget, to feel luxurious!!
