New Delhi: After merging with INOX Leisure Limited, PVR Limited announced the opening of Lucknow’s largest cinema in Lulu Mall, the biggest shopping center in the city. The 11-screen Superplex will increase the company’s presence in Uttar Pradesh, where it will have 158 screens spread across 32 properties, and consolidate its influence in North India, where it will have 438 screens spread across 100 properties.

The 11-Screen Superplex, which is situated in the Amar Shaheed Path neighbourhood of Lucknow, the state capital, is built in a modern style that exudes opulence, glitz, and exuberance. The most technologically sophisticated theater in the city features the multi-sensory 4DX format, premium large-screen format P(XL), two Auditoriums of PVR’s luxury format, LUXE, as well as seven Auditoriums with last-row recliners.

The Superplex, which can accommodate 1841 people, is outfitted with the finest theatrical technology to provide an enhanced and immersive cinematic experience.

We are excited to expand our presence in the state with a world-class cinema.”
