KOCHI: Mexican multiplex operator Cinopolis has opened its 11-screen (8 regular and 3 VIP) state-of-the-art multiplex at Centre Square Mall in Kochi, taking its total screen count in India to 217.
The recent launch is in line with the strategic vision of widening its pan-India footprint and its ambition of tapping the ripe Southern India market for cinema exhibition.
The Cinopolis VIP is a truly revolutionary concept that reinvents entertainment with full leather recliners, the in-theatre restaurant apart from the existing service on-seat, a statement issued here said.
“ Kochi is amongst the fastest growing and the most vibrant cities in India. Its infrastructure is now set to get a greater push with the PM’s Smart City Mission resulting in newer jobs and a larger young, urban population.
The launch of the 11-screen theatre in Kochi is in sync with our ambitious expansion plans. Demonstrating our commitment to the target of reaching the 400-screen landmark by 2017 is the fact that we have also recently unveiled our second property in Hyderabad and are ready to set foot in city of Kolkata,” said Javier Sotomayor, Managing Director, Cinopolis India.
With complete digital projection, the 11-screen multiplex in Kochi will offer audiences a visually-stunning experience, equipped with RealD 3D screens, digital sound and the largest legroom in the industry.
“ We are set to further consolidate our leadership position in Southern India by unveiling five screens in Bengaluru in the next few months,” said Ashish Shukla, Director Expansion.
