  • People still come to these cinema halls. What’s the reason ?

The per seat, per annum turnout is more in PVR Anupam in comparison to the one in Select Citywalk. PVR Anupam has low rental value and does not have common area maintenance charges, making it financially viable.

These community centres are strategically placed in terms of real estate. They can be turned around if there is a will. In fact, the shift back to high-street from malls has already begun. People will eventually turn back to high-street as an option. A classic example is Khan Market.
