While Pakistan does have open-air theaters they’re mostly just mostly makeshift open venues that can be used for any number of performances including a movie screening. Now Nueplex Cinemas, a popular chain of cinema houses in Pakistan has just launched an open-air rooftop theater in Karachi.
These pictures of the new open air cinema are already making cinephiles drool over in anticipation.
Despite open-air screening venues, Pakistan didn’t have a dedicated open-air movie theater, not even a drive-in one. Until now that is.
Pakistan does have many other movie theaters that offer a different kind of experience from the standard cinemas. For example, there are theaters with recliner chairs where you can recline your sofa seat like in first-class seats in a plane.
Now we have one more way of experiencing our favorite movies with our friends and family.
Pakistan’s First Open-air Rooftop Movie Theater
Nueplex Cinemas has launched Pakistan’s first open-air rooftop theater. The cinema is located on the rooftop of Nueplex DHA. However, it is not fully functional yet.
The idea of a rooftop cinema may seem impractical to some but we can’t deny its pretty unique in its own way though. Watch a movie and get some fresh air (two birds, one stone).
Amid all the other ideas for a unique cinema-going experience, this one is most understandable. You can watch a movie in this open-air theater with headphones on.
Guess this takes care of noise complaints, that too in a big city like Karachi.
For movie fans, Nueplex says that they will have to wait for a bit before they can offer tickets for this one-of-a-kind experience. According to some social media posts, the price for one ticket will go Rs 900 per person.
We can’t wait to see how the whole experience stacks up.
