‘City of Joy’ Kolkata gets its share of FAME

Shringar Cinemas Ltd, the movie exhibition and distribution company, has announced its foray in the Eastern Region with the launch of FAME Kolkata at the Metropolis Mall, Hiland Park. With state-of-the-art technology and the best of infrastructural design, the new multiplex is all set to become the happening movie destination in the ‘City of Joy’. As part of its expansion, Shringar Cinemas has also announced its plan to launch two more multiplexes in the city by 2006.

With a capacity of 897 ergonomically designed seats across four screens, specially designed lighting, world class projectors, fully digital sound with three-way surround system, and 100 per cent computerised operations with facilities for internet and tele-bookings; FAME Kolkata brings a world-class movie-viewing experience to cinema goers in Kolkata.

FAME will offer a variety of seating options namely ‘Royal Seating’ – (Sofas), ‘Silver’, ‘Premiere’, and will also introduce the special ‘Romeo & Juliet’ couple seats, that are located in special rows with just two seats per row.

Speaking of the new FAME Multiplex, Shravan Shroff, Managing Director, Shringar Cinemas Ltd, said, “We are extremely excited to offer the FAME experience to the consumers in Kolkata. With the launch of FAME Kolkata, we take another step in our journey towards becoming one of the leading chain of multiplexes in the country. We promise to give cinema lovers a whole new viewing experience with the FAME brand of multiplexes. At FAME, we go beyond ‘just movies’ by making every moment at our theatres a pleasurable experience. We take care of the finer nuances of hospitality with our specially trained staff, F & B catering to suit the local palette, a host of contests and other interactive offers.”

The FAME foyer will offer patrons a wide variety of food and snacks to choose from – continental snacks counters, Chinese food carts, ice creams, popular street foods such as Jhal Muri and Puchka, along with the movie must-have’s such as popcorn, samosas and cola.

As with Shringar Cinemas’ other properties in Mumbai and Nashik, which have become benchmarks in providing international movie viewing experience in India, FAME Kolkata is all set to become synonymous with the 'buzz chaiye aa jaayiye’ mantra.

Red carpet events, opportunities to meet with the biggest Bollywood and Tollywood stars, exclusive ticketed movie previews, innovative and exciting contest and numerous food festivals, are just some of the elements that will keep the buzz going at FAME Kolkata, giving patrons a true flavour of cinema and entertainment as we know it.

On an average, the multiplex will provide a choice of over six to eight movies per day; ranging from Bollywood blockbusters, Hollywood hits, Indian art movies, Indian regional language movies and the best of International Film Festivals.
