Watch First Day First Show Movie At RTC X Roads
If you haven't bunked college to watch a first-day first show of your favourite star, you really need to go back to college. While there are several movie halls at RTC X Roads, Sandhya 70mm is where even celebrities watch their movies on the first day of the release. It is said that the stars come here to experience the reaction of the crowd, first-hand and the success of a movie can be easily decided by these reactions alone. We've experienced quite a madness here. Discover more iconic cinema halls in Hyderabad here.

Grew Up Shopping At Chermas & Funtoosh

A Movie At Prasads Large Screen
Did you weep in the dark when you heard Prasads is no longer IMAX? We sure did. If you call yourself a Hyderabadi and haven't watched Batman or Interstellar or any movie of your choice on IMAX screen, we are judging you. You can still make up for it by watching a movie on Prasads Large Screen. Sure, it's not IMAX anymore, but it's still awesome.
