PVR Cinemas at Centra Mall Chandigarh

pvr cinemas at centra mall chandigarh review

I finally tried out the newly opened PVR Cinemas at Centra Mall Chandigarh also known as PVR Centra. I went for the first day first show of Sex And the City. The mall is yet to begin with full operations. As of now only PVR Cinemas has opened it’s doors. Everyone and even the newspapers have been talking a lot about the parking issues at the Centra Mall. Personally I didn’t experience any parking problem. Although they have a limited space inside the two level basement parking which is bound to choke during peak hours. Enough of that now! Coming back to PVR. The staff at their box office is pretty friendly. Since I already booked my tickets online last night, they had my tickets ready for me. I mean they had already got them printed and the whole process was quick. The PVR Cinemas are located on the fourth floor. There are escalators but still the fourth floor seems to high up. PVR Centra has four screens. The security was pretty tight. They even wanted me to show them my cell phone was actually a cell phone by activating the display. Even if I was supposed to carry say a digicam inside, you won’t make out if it’s a cell phone or a digicam by that! The interiors are pretty well done. The cinema hall was not even 20% of it’s capacity. People here only like Super hero movies or what? PVR Centra failed the popcorn test. They even failed the Pepsi test. My drink had everything but bubbles. Guys I need the fizz! Everyone buys cola for fizz and not ice with water thrown inside a disposable glass labelled as ‘Large’. I didn’t dare to try the Burgers, Hot Dogs they kept showing on the screen during the interval. This is usual PVR stuff. Also I must mention the leg space isn’t any good either. PVR has some sort of a scam running up their site. They show the last row seats i.e the Prime ones as sold out each time. None of those seats were occupied by any one. They looked comfy to me! I don’t understand what these people have in mind. So the movie ends and I came back home. Not entirely happy with PVR Centra. Not entirely mad at them as well. I’ll give you another try people. Make me happy.

  1. I still find PVR to be the best cineplex in Chandigarh at the moment. Fun Cinemas is just shit. They charge 500 bucks for that stupid business class which is really absurd! The seats are cramped and they never give me the bronze class when I ask for it even though the theatre inside is empty. The only department in which they shine is the food(i.e. popcorn n pepsi for me)
    DT is better but the food there is really crappy.
    PVR according to me is the most spacious and tastefully made. The top row is for 150 bucks and its better than that business class. The food is passable. The parking woes were initial. I experienced them and had to park on the road. But now hardly anybody comes to PVR during weekdays.
    One thing these three have in common is the overpriced eatables. Seriously, someone must sue them!

    And all the best, Kismat Konnection tests the patience of even the best!! 😛

  2. I agree with you…even I think FR has the best popcorn and Pepsi…DT’s snacks are like the ones they serve in hospitals..to sick patients…PVR does serve Pizzas…Pastas and all…they had a seperate counter for that…will try next time for sure!

  3. I’ve tried their Pizza… they delivered it to my seat.. its kinda like those 20 bucks waala pizzas that were launched by Amul sometime back… nothing great but just edible.

  6. Centra Mall, is the best location in the heart of city beautiful, Chandigarh.Whereas PVR Cinema is heart thwowing & I experience Very Very GOOD when I has Visited to see GHAJANI.


    1. It’s located at Industrial Area, just ask for Uppal’s centra mall and you’ll know. When you take a right coming from the 17 sector road via Tribune chowk, you go straight and you’ll see the first mall that comes up houses PVR Cinemas! 🙂

  7. hiiii any body tell me pvr cinema correct number in chandigarh..which number is given is incorrect.i m new so its bothering me..any one here?????

  8. Hi, i have a Visa Platinum Plus visa credit card and pvr cinemas give one ticket free on the purchase of one ticket for Platinum cards. But is that on all Platinum cards or Platinum Plus cards also?? Plz help…

  9. Firstly harry-jerry seems to be mentally upset in the pic, a possible reason why you are unable to get a seat. Secondly PVR has a good customer ranking; if you are not happy with the service it is your problem. There is no need to put such articles on the web, which are solely based on your 'experience'.
    Better for you would be to stay away from PVR, else safety of other/happy customers could be at risk because of a psycho like you around them.

  10. I’m Rajeev..unable to find the name of PVR cinemas ( Centra mall ) in Chandigarh Cinemas’s list while booking online..Please provide me with the contact no. of same…
