A two and half decade old theater which has been a part of the celluloid heritage is being renovated to become part of the modern cinematic experience. A total of 7 theaters and 3 lobbies are converted in to contemporary spaces without destroying the intricate wooden and plaster of paris work done 25 years ago. The challenge was to retain them and to highlight them in modern light. The building being a cinema theater, we have created a facade with pirated CDs as a protest against video piracy and created an ever changing elevation. We also have introduced a glass lobby which becomes a common entrance to all theaters.
