This is s a first of its kind retrofit & refurbishment project in Ajmer wherein a single screen cinema of average interiors was converted into a premium two screen multiplex along with retail space .The challenge was to add the screen and increase the seat count without much alteration on the existing structural system. Also care had to be taken that the sightlines are not disturbed for the recliners which requires steep slope as against the existing gentle slope of the screen.
The balcony of the existing screen was converted into a gold class recliner cinema with a dedicated luxurious lounge. The huge volume of the lobby was divided into two parts by adding a slab in between to accommodate the lounge for the gold class screen. The other cinema was added on the top of the lobby with a dedicated lounge and toilets by arranging separate structural system from ground. Each of the class had its own dedicated set of facilities and amenities with separate access from the newly installed high speed elevators. The oriental facade was given a complete makeover to a more modern concept with the use of corrugated sheets and glass.
The interiors are very contemporary and classy with the use of wooden flooring, stone cladding and coloured glass paneling. Persistent linear LED lighting systems make the building standout against a more sedate background.
