The architecture of NY Cinemas was inspired by the city’s cultural diversity and abundance of historical landmarks, as it is evident from the building’s façade and even when you are inside the cinema.
The entire theatre is split into two levels, with a seating capacity of around 700 people and refreshment booths on each level. The cinema is equipped with 3D screens and top of the line plush seats. This multiplex also features a screen with Dolby Atmos surround sound system, ensuring top-tier audio quality that enhances the overall movie watching experience of its patrons.

A live station where foodies can enjoy a meal of their choice that is freshly prepared by handpicked chefs. The cinema also features NY store which is equipped with unique collectibles and celebrity-branded merchandise available on display.
In the words of Mr. Ajay Devgn “I want to bring people together from all sections of society where no one feels left out. This is purely for the passion and FOR THE LOVE OF CINEMA.”
Keeping this as the brand ideology, NY Cinemas was founded, the initials of which were derived from Mr. Ajay Devgn’s children’s names, Nysa and Yug, indicating the business’s core philosophy, which is rooted in pure love.
