More Multiplexes on the way
More multiplexes are making way into Bangalore, and at least three are on the cards right now. Fun Cinemas, a venture by Zee group expects to open a multiplex in Sigma Mall at Cunningham Road. The hall is pretty much ready and they are facing delays in getting permits. A four screen multiplex will open near Trinity circle where Lido Theater once existed. There is one more coming up at FamilyMart junction at JP Nagar – the earlier FamilyMart is now closed to make way for a bigger mall which will also house a multiplex.
All this is going to make watching the movies a good experience for the movie goer. But not everything looks good. The experience of the movie gets better, but the experience of getting to the hall is going to get worse. Except Innovative Multiplex, all the other halls including the ones under construction fall in the region of heavy traffic. We have seen how difficult things have been in Koramangala since Forum and PVR happened. Things might turn out the same way in Trinity Circle and Cunningham Road. The new mall at FamilyMart junction would definitely cause pains at Sarakki Signal. Let’s wait and watch to see how it will turn out.
