Future of Multiplexes in India

For a country that produces twice as many movies a year as Hollywood, India has a problem that?s making cinema theatre operators unhappy: a shortage of modern multi-screen cinemas and plenty of increasingly affluent film fans.Multiplex operators like PVR Ltd., Inox Leisure, Reliance Mediaworks and Mexican chain Cinepolis are scrambling to set up theatres targeting the rapidly growing number of middle-class Indians willing to pay to watch Bollywood movies in more comfortable surroundings.

These plush theatres, often in big city shopping malls, are a far cry from the single-screen cinemas most Indians still frequent and which range from huge, purpose-built halls to sheds where the deluxe seats are wooden benches.Multiplexes account for just 8% of India?s 12,000 screens but rake in a third of total box office receipts, according to the Single Screen Association of India and a report by consultants KPMG and the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI). The industry in India can easily look at 7,500 to 10,000 multiplex screens, though the growth trajectory for such screens has not been fast-paced. All these factors put together indicate there will be huge opportunities for an Usher across towns and cities in India, as the number of entertainment venues increase.
