    Remember that over the top fight sequence in Sivaji when Rajinikanth fights the baddies sitting in his car while watching a movie? That scene was shot in a similar set to this drive-in theatre here in Chennai! Get to the entrance by 7pm because it’s a half an hour wait in the queue to buy tickets and enter the cinema. Once you are in, you find yourself looking for a spot to park in front of the massive 4,500 sq. ft. screen. Each car has its own bay with elevated ramps which make for a better viewing experience!

    They play  two shows a day {mostly Tamil films but there is the odd English blockbuster every once in a while} at 7.30pm and 10.30pm so just make sure to reach a half hour early to find a nice spot. Book your tickets online here and don’t forget to bring your picnic basket… Grab some blankets and pillows and get cosy!

    An Out-Of-The-Hall Experience

    The founder Dr N Devanathan envisioned a cinema going experience under the beautiful stars along with the coastal breeze and that’s what this beachside open theatre is. You have the option of sitting inside your car and watching the movie or like most, take your blankets, portable chairs and snacks and  lie down in front of the allocated space in front of your car. If you don’t fancy either, you can prop yourself in their 500-seater gallery too. The cinema is equipped with a powerful projector, DTS sound system and xenon lamp house, making for an excellent viewing and movie going experience.

    For families with little kids, there is a little park for children where they can run around and play in case you reach early. The adjoined restaurant inside the complex brings food to where you’re seated and as its multi-cuisine, you can order anything from burgers to Chinese!
