It's near Baisakhi, Salt Lake besides the Kestopur foot bridge. About 3-4 months, the structure and external works were over ... should be ready by early 2012

Excellent work there samrat.But after the shutdown of the giant IMAX screen in Mani Square,it is now a regular 2D screen,hence change it to 4 screen.
Also Bioscope in Axis Mall is 4 screen,not 6 screen.

Only in Chennai, there are two plexes Sathyam and Mayajaal which has 10 and 12 screen plex respectively, and i think that's the highest in India!!

Yes m damn sure, cuz m a muvi buff, and watch the movies regularly in plexes, and have visited all the plexes expect Broadway and Bioscope!!....mostly the plex that we have in Kol, are 4 screen except at Fame, South City Mall, which has 6 screen!!

The plex competition in Kol is very low, with only 2 big players...we still dont have DT Cinemas, PVR and Fun Republic!!

While i was in Del, used to see movies in PVR only!!

Hope that PVR would come soon to Kolkata!!....

Typically in a metro there is room for 4-5 plex companies.PVR, DT etc may have just missed the bus as far as Kolkata is concerned. Also price of ticket is a important factor in Kolkata. I used to frequently watch movies in PVR m'plex in Hyderabad central mall back in 2006/07 where the minimum price was 70.00, in other words price at today rates may be a little too high for Kolkata.

hmm....i guess DT might be coming this time @ DLF Galleria, cuz DT is of DLF group!!..So hope a6e!!

actually PVR's price fluctuates from place to place, lyk, in Del, rate at PVR CP is 120 bucks while at Saket its 100....all night show rates, between dushera and diwali 2010...same goes for Kol...

Fame SC mall's rate for Ready was 170-190, while at Hiland park it was 120-150!!

That's Right. Its because of the class of the crowd, South City obviously fetching nicher crowd than Hiland Park. Recent study shows that the top three grosser in Kolkata are
1. Fame @ South City Mall
2. Inox @ City Centre Salt Lake
3. Inox @ Forum
in that order.

DLF Galleria & Unitech Downtown.
So couple of more plexes anticipated.
Lake Mall is supposed to have Fun Republic. It is in their website.
Another Cinemax property is supposedly coming up in Salt Lake. Any idea which mall??

Its also because of the location, like for us, staying in South Kol, its easy to reach SC or Forum, than detouring all the way for Hiland park!!
