“Cinemas are no longer just about watching a movie, but an experience that is special enough to lure people away from their homes to the big screen,” he said.

“The goal is to give patrons the experience of affordable luxury at a price point that is within their reach, without compromising our levels of excellence.”

Among the newly-added features are high-speed Wi-Fi internet connection, mobile device charging stations and six fully-automatic self-service ticketing machines.
