When I lived in Seven Bungalows, Mumbai, the Andheri cinemas (Cinemax, Fame and Fun) were a second home. I’d catch the new films during the week and the international and classic films early Sunday morning.
I loved going to Cinemax (very clean and great reclining seats). I loved going to Fun (crappy seats but there was ten pin bowling to kill time before the show).
I hated going to Fame. Fame was run down, I constantly ended up with broken seats, the sound was always too loud. Fame’s only strong points were that it had good Samosas and participated in 2-for-1 ticket schemes during the week.
But times are changing and Fame is now PVR and PVR makes beautiful cinemas. Yesterday they opened the new Andheri PVR in the place of the old Fame and it looks great. New screens, new sound and PVR’s Enhanced Cinema Experience (ECX).
Can’t wait to check it out. I wonder if they kept the samosas…
