Multiplex Mania Continues

The Telegraph reports on the Multiplex boom. It's good to see the trend expanding to smaller cities. As Anand mentioned in one of of my earlier posts, it would be better if the quality of movies matches up with the quality of the movie halls.

.......Besides these, regional players like Sathyam Cinemas, which has two multiplexes in Chennai and was the first theatre in the country to deploy Hollywood-standard digital cinema, are also expanding. Sathyam will add 18 more screens (three multiplexes) across Chennai and Cochin with an investment of Rs 30 crore in 2008. The company is also scouting for four-five more sites in Chennai besides venturing into cities like Madurai, Coimbatore, Trichy and Calicut.

  • Amazing comment that..."quality of movies matches up with the quality of the movie halls!" Short of sounding elitist, I hope Anand knows a thing or two about capital costs, running costs and returns on investments! Besides, isn't 'quality' a subjective issue? India is a country for 'volumes' (read:masses) not for 'niches'...

  • Well, Its nice, all these Multiplexes!! But what abt the Ticket rates, i am sure it will sky rocket. Soon,these multiplexes may force the 'ordinary' cinema halls to go out of business, finally we will have no other option other than shell out big bucks to watch a 'Good' movie!!
