Odeon Carnival Cinemas at Connaught Place in Delhi to movie aficionados with a plush new look and much-awaited movie ‘Thugs Of Hindustan’. Kunal Sawhney, Vice President, Operations, Carnival Cinemas along with Chief Guest Manish Sisodia (who also holds the Education, Finance, Planning, Tourism, Land & Building, Services, Women & Child, Art, Culture & Languages portfolios in the Government of NCT of Delhi) inaugurated the revamped theater.
Odeon Carnival Cinemas houses two screens with a total seating capacity of 592 seats (screen 1 & 2 has 284 and 308 seats respectively). It has been refurbished with the state-of-the-art facilities, opulent interiors, Dolby Atmos sound, high luminosity 3D screens, plush leather sofa seating arrangements (32 in screen 1 and 28 in screen 2), a wide array of F&B and gourmet cuisines and the best-in-class services which blend today’s audience requirements with the theatre’s nostalgic charm.
This 80 years Old theatre was converted into a Multiplex Cinema Hall owning to the increasing trend in Multiplexes in Delhi in 2009. It is centrally located and lies in close proximity to hip and happening restaurants & food outlets in Connaught Place hence making it one of the preferred Movie Theatre destination through the 1970s up till today. The original Theatre housed a Single Screen Hall that was opened in 1939 that later was converted into a two-screen multiplex by (then) Big Cinemas (now Odeon Carnival Cinemas after the acquisition of Big Cinemas by later in 2015) that took 3 good years to construct. And now this is its third mega makeover – it was first renovated in 1960s.
Manish Sisodia at the inauguration said that,
“It’s been incredible to see the transformation underway at the cinema. With new screens being constantly added and old ones getting renovated, thanks to the chain’s focused aggressive expansion, movie goers will have even more locations to choose from in the future. Carnival has raised the bar on innovation, encouraging consumers to come back to the movie theatres. Carnival Cinemas, aims to ‘democratize movie viewing experience’ by making it accessible to all movie lovers across not just Delhi NCR but the whole country and beyond.”
