Chapter-1 Introduction

Cinema halls are the place where the movie viewers spend couple of hours engrossed in the events that take place on the screen. Movies are inseparable part of every Indian. India being the largest producer of films has maintained the higher levels of art, innovation and seriousness with a new genre of movies. Hindi movies have huge mass base all across India. The Indian film industry is one of the largest in the world producing 1041 films, annually. In fact, Hindi movies are quite popular in several parts of the world. Probably the popularity of Hindi movies amongst Indian populace has prompted people to term Hindi movies as biggest passion and obsession of India.

Since the time Hindi movies came into existence; it has kept people glued to large screens. All over India, people wait for FRIDAY’S FIRST DAY, FIRST SHOW of a new movie. India has an astonishing number of 12000 cinema halls of those, nearly 700 are multiplexes. But that number is expected to more than double in the next three years because with every passing day many new multiplexes are opening up.To make this a memorable and an enjoyable experience the hall owners provide exceptional and superior ambience. Multiplexes gives them the much needed choice, alternate movies or flexible timing, varied entertainment for the family and snacks and meals of great taste. Hindi film industry, which commands a 40 per cent share of the Indian film market, is gaining a global audience. A spurt in the number of multiplexes in the country has changed the entire complexion of Indian films -their budgets, the way they are made and the audiences they are made for. Multiplexes have played a pivotal role in these developments, catering to a global taste.

A decade after the first multiplex opened in India, the magic of its comfort-viewing and Dolby digital.Sound effects have got most cinema viewers hooked and many don't even remember the last time they visited a single screen movie hall. `FINER ASPECTS OF MOVIE WATCHING' Take your pick from `rocker technology' backed stadium seating, no obstruction viewing, plasma wall-to-wall screens, Xenon projection technology screening, digital surround sound with Dolby and DTS technology, interlocking projection, fibre optic lighting roofs, and more. From one multiplex in Saket, south Delhi, in 1997 their number today has crossed 700 across the country with about 20,000 screens, redefining the way films are viewed. In the coming years, the number of multiplexes in India is going to increase from the current number. The rising number of multiplexes would offer quality entertainment to the consumers. Over the years, multiplexes have become a very important part of the Indian entertainment industry pie. They offer the user a variety of movies with flexibility of timings and have also opened doors to a whole new world of revenue generation streams. It is like consolidated entertainment centres in the form of movie theatres, restaurants and shopping arcades - all under one roof. It provides facilities like food court, gaming zone, shopping place etc. It would focus on families and youngsters as their target markets with facilities catering to all the age-groups. I think anyone who has once enjoyed a film in a multiplex would always want to go there only

PVR Ltd, which brought this concept to India, has a total of 95 screens in 22 multiplexes across India, Fun Cinemas has 50 screens in 11 cities, Inox Leisure Ltd. has 19 multiplexes with 65 screens and Adlabs Cinemas has no less than 100 screens in 22 cities. Up to 97 percent of urban youth prefer to watch movies in multiplexes AS COMPARED TO TRADITIONAL CINEMA COMPLEXES, THE MULTIPLEXES OFFER LOTS OF BENEFITS:GREATER AND BETTER UTILIZATION OF THE SAME RETAIL SPACE:-

The multiplexes takes as much of retail space as ordinary cinema halls, but it utilizes it in a better way as there is a match between the genre of the movie and seating capacity.

Becoming a king of outdoor advertising and with

that will come a unique opportunity to the advertisers to increase their brand recall levels. The host of options at the multiplex includes commercials, translites and promotions in the form of cut-outs, physical display of products at the foyers, video-walls, movie-brand associations, product sampling, corporate alliances and other innovative promotions. Till now, a lot of marketers in India have tried innovative campaigns at Multiplexes, most of them belonging to the high- income segments. Some of major brands, which have used multiplexes for their promotions, include Maruti Alto, Gillette, Pepsi, Airtel, MasterCard, Whirlpool, Cadbury's, Samsung, Motorola, Woodland, Seagram’s, Star Movies, ESPN and even The Times of India. FOR

physical display of its bike, 'Ambition,' at the foyer, commercials and translites and joint promotion with movies. BETTER AMBIENCE:Multiplex has made movie watching a holistic experience.

THE FACILITIES PROVIDED BY MULTIPLEXES:- . SHOPPING FACILITY.

EVERY PERSON CAN’T AFFORD THAT MUCH MONEY WHICH ONE IS OFFERED BY MULTIPLEXES-: India is not an economically developed country like USA or Canada or many European countries where majority of people fall into the same economic zone and population is just sufficient or even less in comparison to the capacities of these countries. Not a very large number of people are dependent on cinema only to get the entertainment there.

Nothing was wrong in making multiplexes in India mostly multiplexes were developed on the debris of old and economical single screen cinema halls and hence their existences reduced the chances for a large number of people to watch the film in first week of its release.

This culture has brought the first weekend culture also in to the picture. then one film may cost them close to 1000 Rupees which include their conveyance and eating etc also. The core of these multiplexes is not quality entertainment. While watching a film . but hollow facilities and it is really sad that people are willing to pay astronomical prices and abandoning theatres and drama for these bromides. Now this rush to earn maximum money over first weekend has taken the shape of an ugly competition. it can be said safely that now films have become products for them and they want full and positive response from a film on which they have spent more than 150 (sometimes 250) Rupees and when its about a family of.

Because audience paid a reasonable amount to buy a ticket to watch the film So films at reasonable ticket prices provokes audience to watch the film and search the merits while films at higher ticket prices force audience to look for negatives because now they are buying a costly product and they have to behave like consumers. And what kind of economic policy is this? Big Films are not released in small and old cities having old cinema halls with single screen only and they are mostly left with dubbed “A” certified films. accommodation and food. three star or five star differentiations can work beautifully in the hotel or restaurant business because one may get the fundamental things. initially can spend this money till they are alone.

(working class) who are financially capable to watch all the films in multiplex. “This one star. A person spending Rs 30-40-50 on an average film will come out as a happy man as he may get some entertainment against that reasonable price he has spent on the film.” Young audiences. Cinema halls of small cities are left available to screen cheap films as they have to run the films so people making garbage or soft porn or irresponsible films have occupied that segment of .in a multiplex means a good sum of money has been spent and it buys the usability only for the 2-2.

If big films are chosen to be released in multiplexes only then their filmmakers and distributers are depriving a large section of people from getting the pleasure of seeing the film in first week.5 hours. Watching cinema in multiplex serves some purpose for them but ultimately roots of majority of them also come from middle class and sometimes from lower middle class and sooner or later they have to object on high price and many of them object now also.
