4 Iconic Movie Theatres In Delhi Where You Can Watch A Movie Starting @ Rs 66 A Ticket

We all like to pamper ourselves by going to all these fancy multiplexes, but sometimes the overpriced popcorn and the generic, mainstream crowd gets repetitive and well, we’re all up for new experiences! With the old-school charm of dusty velvet curtains and old-fashioned technology, we found five legendary theatres that are super cheap and will offer you an experience from a completely different age: 

1. Ritz Cinema 

Located on Lothian Road, just south of Kashmere Gate is 80 year old Ritz Cinema that boasts of a single screen. The area used to be, and still is, a lively commercial space and the front part of the building looks newer than the rest of the structure, so we’re guessing that it used to look a bit different in its time. It closed down for a few years but reopened around three years back and has since regained its popularity! 

Where | Ritz Cinema - Lothian Road, Inter State Bus Terminal, Kashmere Gate
Price | Rs 66 Onwards

2. Liberty Cinema 

Less than 5 kms away from Connaught Place, Liberty Cinema has been functional since 1956 and has been entertaining movie-goers for the past 50 years! They have constantly upgraded their technology and have a huge seating space for more than 950 people. The tickets are extremely cheap and even the most expensive balcony seats here are only for Rs 170 - WAY cheaper than any of your usual multiplexes!

3. PVR Anupam

This one sets itself apart from the category of old and rundown cinemas, as it was established in 1997 and is relatively new. Being amongst the first multiplex cinemas of Delhi, it still boasts of newer technology and facilities and has various eating joints nearby as well. Like other PVRs, the tickets are cheaper for the morning shows and on Thursdays, so defo drop by if you’re in the vicinity for a movie and cheap novels!

4. Shiela

It’s known as the first 70 mm screen theatre in India and was established in 1961. The seating space here is large and spacious with a beautiful retro lobby area. Here, the screen was curved very subtly in order to add an illusion of depth which has been a unique feature and they also have a small snacks counter for some pocket-friendly munchies.

Where | Shiela- DB Gupta road, Arya Nagar, Paharganj
Price | Rs 100 Onwards
