I really recommend going to the light just for the seats. They are comfy and give you plenty of leg room. My friend is 6ft 3in Andheri is very comfy in them.

I really like this cinema, it's cosy, it's customer service is great and the screens are much smaller so it's more personal. Very comfy seats and easily accessible. Good choice of films and concerts

It saddens me to write this review. I remember going to this cinema when it first opened and it was fantastic. But over the years standards have slipped to a point where it is poorly managed, overpriced, and does nothing to tackle antisocial behaviour. During...More
