Cinemax in expansion mode; introduces Red Lounge concept in Mumbai

MUMBAI: The Mumbai-based Kanakia Group, promoters of the Cinemax chain of multiplexes, is planning to set up multiplexes in cities Nagpur, Indore and Lucknow by 2006. The company presently operates six multiplexes in Mumbai and one in the neighbouring city Nasik.
Cinemax will open its seventh multiplex in Mumbai in the Infinity mall in Andheri‘s Versova on 9 September. With two more multiplexes to launch in Thane and Kandivli East in the next two months, the company expects to take the total number of its movie screens to 34.

Cinemax, which asserts a market share of 32 per cent in the Mumbai market, hopes to capitalise on the successful movies Bollywood has been churning out this year. "2004 was a bad year for exhibitors because of the lack of blockbusters. But this year, the scenario is different. We have many successful movies. Hence the theatre occupancy is expected to record an increase of approximately 55 per cent this year," says Cinemax chain of multiplexes director Hiral Kanakia.
