Metro Cinema gets makeover turns into double screen multiplex
| Monday | 22nd February, 2021
KOLKATA: The iconic Metro Cinema in Esplanade has reopened in a new multiplex avatar.
One of the oldest theatres in the city, the Metro has been rejuvenated by Metro Realty Group in consultation with eminent Heritage architect Subir Kumar Basu, an alumnus of Jadavpur University.
The cinema hall's design inculcates both heritage and modern elements.
The single-screen theatre has been restructured into a double screen multiplex with a seating capacity of 422.
Designed by New York-based architect Thomas Lamb, Metro had started its journey on December 5, 1935, with the screening of Bohemian Girls.
