Delhi's Iconic Chanakya Is Gonna Make A Comeback As PVR’s First ECX Multiplex Y'All!

City Wire 25 Sept 2017


A little less than 10 years after it was shut down, causing a lot of heartache, Chanakya is back as a DLF mall with a PVR multiplex, a New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) project. PVR will begin to screen films on Friday while the mall will be opened in a phased manner, beginning October! 

The project began in 2008 and the construction got delayed a little for various reasons, including the need to seek clearances from various agencies like Delhi Fire Service, Airport Authority of India and a couple more. 

NDMC was keen on completing the project ahead of the Commonwealth Games in order to attract tourists and cater to diplomats and officials of the participating countries but the construction work could actually start only in January 2013. Meanwhile, malls have sprung up all over the city with multiplexes, food courts and retail outlets. But many old-timers have been looking forward to Chanakya reopening in a new avatar.

PVR is here with their first ever ECX Cinema experience that we’re so super excited to go check out! The three-screen,‘PVR ECX’ will be the city’s first Enhanced Cinema Experience, where the contemporary design blends with the best in cinema technology. With this launch, PVR reaches a mark of 600 screens, with a total of 131 properties in 51 cities across the country. Woah!

So excited for this to open!! YAY!
