Priya Village Roadshow, the country's first multiplex chain finally opened its 11-screen multiplex, PVR Forum, in Bangalore today. Ready for launch over two months ago, the opening was put off due to the ongoing tussle in the local film industry. Located at the Forum Mall, the multiplex is India's largest and has 7 regular screens, 2 lounge screens and 2 gold class screens. The gold class screens each have only 32 plush reclining sofas for an
ultra-luxurious movie-viewing experience. The multiplex will screen movies in Kannada, English, Tamil, Telugu and Hindi on a regular basis besides the best of cinema from other Indian and world languages.
The mutiplex, quite understandably, has chosen not to screen any of the movies that fall foul of the unilateral moratorium imposed by a section of the Kannada film industry.
What you can expect:
An array of choice under one roof (if the film industry situation improves)
An expensive but luxurious viewing experience
Loads of traffic jams and parking shortage
