Being from Bangalore, a city of many malls, was apprehensive about what else to expect here. However, the design and aesthetics of the cinemas and common area are fantastic and hats off to Satyam Cinemas for the design and maintenance. We had been to the Dsiney Moana 3D movie, which is lovely and complements the ambience. Coming to price, the... More

They can take orders before the movie starts &... More

One of the very good multiplexes in Chennai. On the positive side, the Seats and the screen view are pretty comfortable. As there are restrictions on ticket pricing by the Government of Tamilnadu, they are not expensive, unlike other Metro cities. But the cost of snacks as is the prevalent trend elsewhere, is on the higher side.
