Fresh popcorns, cold pepsi and a good movie. That’s a perfect Saturday night for me. If that movie is on a cinema , then that’s a bonus!
Karachi has its share of cinemas and cinema-goers. Even though, the movies are generally not A-one; infact not even A grade. However, once in a while, you get lucky and something interesting is seen.
The four main cinema with the last one being the most recent are:
Nishat Cinema retty decent, even from a Pakistani’s point of view.The parking, the popcorns, the gentry, are pretty much like us and you can enjoy a good movie in the coolness of a working AC.
Capri Cinema: Welllll, if the movie is good, then you wont notice the bad points of this place. The bathrooms are pretty clean and so is the waiting area. I will give it a 7 out of 10 score, with 10 being the highest.
Prince Cinema: Pretty bad condition. The air conditioning is also in a poor state, the rows of seat are so close together, that it is difficult to walk normally. Movie watching can be done only in one position, as the seat is not capable of accommodating a moving person.
Universal Cineplex : This was created in September 2003. It is a modern state of the art cineplex, with five full screens and an expansive lobby catering especially to families & couples.
The location is also very ideal.It is located on the prestigious beach avenue, right across the Arabian ocean in Defence Society.
