Pokhara is a city full of movie buffs. A massive crowd can always be found around the cinema halls on weekends and on weekdays as well. Even though there are various cinema halls in the town, but the absence of a standard and modern theater has always been felt by the movie goers here. To fulfill all the desires and expectations of them, a brand new multiplex has been started. Pokhara Multiplex which was inaugurated on the auspicious occasion of ‘Fulpaati’ on October 20th has many features and facilities that other cinema halls could not offer; which include the latest Christie Solaria 2K Projection screen and 7.1 Dolby Digital sound. The air condition theaters with two screens have a capacity of 363 and 231 seats. The best thing about Pokhara Cineplex is the screening of Hollywood films. Rest of the theaters have not been screening Hollywood films in Pokhara which used to leave the audience with only option to watch them on the internet. The tickets are priced at Rs. 350/400 for Hollywood movies and Rs. 300/350 for Kollywood and Bollywood movies on weekends. The ticket to watch a 3D film will cost Rs. 50 more and a discount of Rs. 50 can be received on all the tickets on weekdays.
The tagline of Manakamana Maai Entertainment Pvt. Ltd.’s venture ‘Pokhara Cineplex’ is “Film, Food, Fun” and along with the movies, they boast a game zone with various indoor games including bowling, snooker and many others. For the food lovers, there is a food court with various outlets from some of the best restaurants in town.
According to Govind Rauniyar, CEO; the reaction from the audience has been great so far and what makes them choose this cinema hall over others is not only the quality of it but also the family friendly environment which all the other halls lack. He says, “We have a complete package to spend a day well. From movies to various games to the best food, we have it all here. Customers’ satisfaction is the most important earning for us and we shall keep on improving with their feedback in future as well.”
