If you’re a Rajinikanth fan {or not}, we probably don’t need to tell you the star’s latest movie, Kabali is releasing today. For all we know, you might already be humming Neruppu Da, the title track {pretty much the anthem for most by now} and hunting for a ticket online. Quite unsurprisingly, most shows for the entire weekend are already sold out. But while you may not get to catch the first-day-first-show, there are plenty of options to pick from over the weekdays, once all the crazy commotion has died down. Plus, you might not have to shell out too much either. We went ahead and picked out five old-school single-screen theatres where you’ll get to watch the movie, along with true blue Rajini fans {that’s the way to go, after all}.

Lavanya Theatre

Known to screen the latest of Tamil releases, this one’s bound to be on your list already if you’re a fan of Tamil movies. Be prepared to jostle a bit for your tickets though {alas, they don’t seem to have online booking}. Although that might not bother the hardcore Rajinikanth fans out there, we think. We suspect that this one will have whistling and wowing crowd, as it usually does. Bring on the real fans!

Probably one of the oldest cinema halls in Bangalore {it was built in the time of World War II, you see}, Rex Theatre has stood the test of time and how! We think that’s reason enough for you to skip the multiplexes and head here to watch Thalaiva‘s latest release. Throw in some popcorn and snacks {Kathi rolls, momos and the works}, and you’re sorted, unless you’re going to be too busy cheering and whistling for the star along with the Thalaiva fans.

Cauvery Theatre

The iconic place has comfy seats and budget nibbles and we’re already sold. Pick from the Balcony, Mini Balcony and First Class seats here and settle in to watch your favourite star’s movie.

Apparently among the first in the state to introduce Digital and 3D Projection, this single-screen theatre promises you a remarkable movie experience. And, what better way to make most of it than by catching a show of what might be the most anticipated release of the year? Plus, you’ll get some solid fan following here.

Radhakrishna Theatre

While you might not get to catch the first show of Kabali on its release day {unless you’ve cleverly booked well in advance}, head to Radhakrishna Theatre on a weekday and you can score tickets for INR 150 {first class} or INR 200 {balcony}. Add to that a well-stocked snack counter and we possibly couldn’t ask for more.
