PVR ties up with France-based ŌMA Cinema to introduce 'cinema pods' in India

Mumbai: Homegrown film exhibition company PVR Cinemas has entered into an exclusive tie-up with France-based Ōma Cinema to introduce the premium concept of 'cinema pods' in India. The announcement was made at CinemaCon 2022 in Las Vegas which is the largest gathering of film theater owners from around the world.

Ōma Cinema was created by renowned French architect Pierre Chican, who has designed some of the most cutting-edge cinemas in France over the last 30 years. Inspired by the design of the great theatres and opera houses, Ōma Cinema’s unique tiered balconies, or “pods,” enable viewers to enjoy a unique, sociable, cinema experience whilst enjoying a perfect view of the screen.

“We are excited to bring about the unique and proprietary concept of cinema pods to India with this exclusive tie-up with PVR," commented Ōma Cinema founder and president Pierre Chican. "Our designs ensure that each pod within the auditoria is unique and designed to perfection. The world of films and fantasy now has another feather in its cap!”

Recently, PVR launched India’s first rooftop drive-in theatre at Jio World Drive in Mumbai in association with Reliance Jio Drive-In as well as Maison PVR. A six-screen uber-luxury multiplex cinema offers three intrinsically designed concepts, an exclusive colour theme in each of the three premium audis, 'Luxe' screens, a viewing room for private screenings. PVR also expanded its luxury formats with the launch of the Director’s Cut in Haryana.

“We have always been at the forefront of design architecture and innovative concepts, to ensure that our patrons get to experience the magic of movies and create happy memories every time they visit the cinemas," said PVR Ltd chief growth and strategy officer Pramod Arora. "An option to have a private movie party with friends and family, OMA pods shall be your own space offering an unmatched bespoke experience of watching a film on a very large screen alongside specially crafted F&B options. Many corporates have been used to their own box at sporting events in stadia and now they shall have an option to have one in a cinema too.”
