India’s First Cinema Multiplex Within An Airport Opened In Chennai

PVR Cinemas on Wednesday (1 February) launched India’s first-ever multiplex within an Airport complex in Chennai.

This new entertainment facility within Chennai Airport has five screens with 1,155 seating capacity.

The PVR Aerohub, built to cater to the arriving and the departing passengers of the airport, is equipped with 2K RGB+ Laser projectors, RealD 3D digital stereoscopic projection for crystal clear, razor-sharp, ultra-bright pictures and advanced Dolby Atmos high-definition immersive audio.

“Entertainment forms an integral part of our daily lives, and today’s consumers are cash-rich, time-poor. So there is no better way for transit passengers to make the best use of their spare time than to watch movies,” Ajay Bijli, Chairman and Managing Director of PVR Limited, said.

“Setting up a cinema next to the airport is strategic as they aim to provide a movie experience to travellers 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,” Sanjeev Kumar Bijli, Joint Managing Director, PVR Limited, told Business Today.
