Trichy is getting ready to have a new commercial complex catering to various commercial interests including a multiplex movie halls. Film Production and distribution house G.V. Films Ltd. will build integrated commercial complexes in 23 tier II cities and Trichy will be one of them. The first one will be coming up in Thanjavur and the G.V.Films is negotiating the land details in Trichy.
Any one want to guess where it is going to come up ?
If you are wondering how the existing “landmark” ciniplex, MARIS Complex is doing in Trichy, I can say NOT GOOD. It looks old and run down as it is in the picture here.
This is a recent picture of the Maris complex. Those who remembered its heydays will be reminded of the big crowds and seemingly endless queues for tickets. But now, I think only two theaters in the original five is operational and that too with limited crowd. I wonder what happened.. Is it because of poor movies or is it because of its poor maintenance. ?
Anyway hopefully this new multiplex will bring life to this business. The whole country is going in the direction of malls and multiplexes , so we need to take the first step and let the new multiplex be that step.
