All of us must have enjoyed our favourite movies in air-conditioned theatres. But have you ever watched a movie in the open air, sitting in your car?
If not, then get ready, India is going to have its first open air roof-top theatre. The new concept will address the social distancing issues in the time of Covid.
Reliance Retail is going to open the country’s first open air roof-top theatre, where people can drive in their car to watch cinema, will open from November 5 at its premium shopping mall Jio World Drive in Mumbai.
The Jio drive-in theatre, operated by PVR, will have a capacity to accomodate 290 cars and it claims to have the biggest screen in town.
The precinct also introduces PVR’s flagship cinema concept of Maison PVR for the first time in India. The new concept launches with 6 state-of-the-art multiplex theatres, preview theatre and separate entrance for VIP guests.
Jio World Drive, spanning across an area of 17.5 acres in the commercial epicentre of Mumbai, Bandra Kurla Complex, will house only premium international and Indian brands.
Reliance Retail Director Isha Ambani said Jio World Drive (JWD) is born from an insight that the modern-day customer views shopping as a sensorially enriching experience — one filled with fun, exploration and discovery.
Along with the Jio Drive-in theatre, JWD will have ‘The Bay Club’ which will be accessible to members only. It will house advanced sports and athletic facilities.
