India's first multiplex in an airport opens in Chennaitext_fields
India's first multiplex in an airport complex has been launched in the new Aerohub multiplex in Chennai by PVR Cinemas. Set in the airport complex of Chennai International Airport, the multiplex has five screens and can seat 1,155 people.
The theatre will also be open to arriving and departing passengers as well as residents and visitors to the general neighbourhood. It also has modern equipment and compatibility with current-generation screening technologies like 2K RGB+ laser projectors, Real D 3D stereoscopic projection, and Dolby Atmos audio.
The location will benefit particularly those who are looking for something to do in-between flights transiting via Chennai.
Sanjeev Kumar Bijli, Joint Managing Director of PVR, told NDTV that setting up a cinema next to the airport is strategic as we aim to provide a movie experience to travellers/passengers who might arrive at Chennai airport early to catch their flights or wait for a delayed flight while making effective use of their leisure time they have at their disposal. "With a strong content lineup and a huge pent-up demand from movie connoisseurs, we are confident that our patrons will appreciate our new cinema for a holistic movie-going experience."
