Fame Multiplex

Lido theater in Bangalore close to Trinity Circle few years back was brought down making way for Lido Shopping Mall and yesterday was the opening ceremony of Fame Multiplex. The tagline of this multiplex is “Meet the famous at FAME”. I of course did not see any famous people. Few points to ponder
1. If you are sitting at the corner seats you need to strain yourself while watching the action on the screen.
2. The front row is too close to the screen. Aren’t there any standards for this distance??
3. They have more number of screens and fewer seats, maybe this would fetch them money even if one movie fails but is this a good trend. Best left to the management.
4. Why do they forcibly create an interval. When watching the movie Rambo today when the movie was getting into a very good mode and where in the next 30mins movie would end, an intermission is forced on the viewers. Are the viewers demanding this??
This I see as a move by the theater owners to force people to buy pop-corn and other edible items to make business which otherwise would never move out of their shelf. As a movie buff am more interested in the movie not in eating. Other viewers making noise when munching on he pop-corn is also irritating especially when the movie is interesting. If the movie is like Golden Compass I would never be bothered.
5. The entire space looks very cramped. I don’t think this could be improved in future also.
6. In the urge for money I feel other things are not being catered to.
