In a bid to embrace latest technology of 21st century, Pakistani cinema goers will now experience the unique technology of 3D movies as country’s first 3D cinema is fast approaching the completion stage and the first movie is likely to be aired by October 2010
Mandviwala Entertainment plans to build three theatres with an investment of Rs 60 million Based in Karachi, the major work of the cinema has already been completed and the interior of the cinema is being given the final touches in this regard.
It is pertinent to mention here that 42 feet screen in all three theatres will accommodate a total of 670 movie goers who will be provided the opportunity to enjoy 3D experience.
Nadeem Mandviwala, the owner of Mandviwala Entertainment in an interview with BBC Urdu showed optimism that the country will enter into 21st century with this technology.
He said that world is swiftly shifting from 35 MM technology to 3D cinemas, while this ongoing project can be considered as a step towards digital movies in Pakistan.
Mr. Nadeem was of the view that the technology itself is in evolving stages and it would be unwise to predict it will be an instant hit. “Pakistani Cinema Industry is currently undergoing the fall, as the trend of demolishing cinemas to replace with plazas is rising. So one has to be cautious in this regard.” He added.
