I really wish they revamp the exterior and make the movie going experience a lot more hassle free. You are stuck in the crowd while entering- their crowd management really needs improvement !

Muni kannaiya, is history now, the theatre group is now managed by young and dynamic guys within their family.

Mr Srinisundar it's a very old thread 2 yrs past.the structure of Devi Bala is same, but has lots of improvements otherwise technically and design.

Is the mod, present or past?

Re: Devi cinemas- Chennai

Devi Kala seems to be getting all the projection and sound upgrades while Devi and Devi paradise have not had any upgrades for a long time. I always wanted to check out the Dolby 3D system installed there but the small screen kept me off and I am hoping that they would install Dolby 3D at one of their bigger screens. Dolby 3D is supposed to be the better than other 3D systems in use today and I also heard they have upgraded to 7.1 sound. It was nice to read a good review about the theatre which seemed to be getting a lot negative feedback in recent times

Dude, you owe us a review after checking out the Bangalore IMAX. Looks like Chennai will have to wait for a few more months for a IMAX theatre, Sathyam is coming with two IMAX screens

I think the screen that you went to in the US must have been one of the smaller IMAX screens. Its the larger IMAX theatres like the one in Hyderabad that really makes you awe when compared to reguar 70mm screens.

Wink Re: Devi cinemas- Chennai

After hearing many rave reviews about Devi cinemas, I went there to watch Thuppakki (Watched it second time just to feel the theater experience). I was really awe struck with the huge curved screen. On the other hand I felt picture quality was not crisp like that of sathyam. I suppose sathyam has better projection.

In terms of sound, I really liked Devi cinemas. Sathyam's bass is boomy and highs were sometimes fatigue. However, there was noticeable echo in Devi cinemas, especially while surround speaker is triggered. The theater was filled only with 30% of crowd, this may have been a contributing factor for echo. Overall, It was truly a different cinema viewing experience.
