With the cinema going culture finally thriving, movie theatres all over Karachi have started cropping up. Hopefully this would allow more people to catch latest movies as soon as they are released without the need to hound cinemas for booking much earlier.
So when the news of another movie theatre opening in Karachi hit the stands, it was welcomed like Nawaz Sharif was in Lahore after elections (in a good way of course). The more the merrier.
Nueplex Cinemas, housed on the second floor of The Place, (opposite Creek Vista) aren’t just another addition to the existing movie theatres. The cinemas have been designed by cinema architects Mesbur & Smith from Canada ( I didn’t know cinema architects existed).
Anyway, the impressive cinema having 5 theatres has around 1200 seats and are home to three of the largest silver screens in Pakistan. Fitted with the latest 3D technology as well as custom designed sound systems (mumbo jumbo meaning a lot of money was spent on it) the cinemas are all set to make you used to watching your most anticipated movies in style, provided you are up for a very long drive.
The official launch party of Nueplex cinemas was arranged by Catalyst PR and Marketing and was quite the affair. You can tell yourself from the pictures below. Four different movies were being screened in the all the theatres and the attendees could go see any they liked (with complimentary popcorns of course).
I went to see Pacific Rim in 3D. Will be reviewing the movie in the next blog post as I think it deserves its own entry.
The theatre was everything you hoped it to be and more. Plus Bilal Maqsood of Strings sat a row below me (the popcorns were the only thing stopping me from squealing like a fangirl).
Verdict: whether you live near Creek Vista or not, you have to visit Nueplex cinemas solely for the experience at least once.
