The press people who attended the City Pharmacy Group's media launch two months ago were treated to a movie screening of the latest Hollywood movie The Green Hornet plus popcorn, sodas and cocktails
to go with it to somehow experience a glimpse of the future cinematic experience in Papua New Guinea.
There was an air of excitement during the media launch as the highly-awaited multiplex cinema will be opened at the third floor of Vision City in Port Moresby with an 8.5m widescreen in three theatres, two standard ones and one Gold Class.
It is timidly planned to open by middle of this year and is billed as "Paradise Cinema".
The said cinema project is a joint collaboration of three major companies namely CPL Group, PNG FM Ltd and Damodar Group from Fiji.
There will be two standard theatres with seating capacity of 210 for Theatre 1 while it's 180 seats for Theatre 2.
To be built exclusively for Gold Class members, this third theatre will have a seating capacity of 100 people.
Speaking at the media launch held recently, CPL group chairman Mahesh Patel (pictured above, right)said: "We will install the most-advanced digital equipment at the Paradise Cinema.
"We have started testing the equipment and are busy training the staff.
"With its digital aspect from Dolby Digital Sound, one can view a film in crystal-clear, near- to- perfect quality and with the best sound system."
One of the partners, Adrian Au, the general manager of PNG FM Ltd., added that "the said project would also mean additional employment opportunities for Papua New Guineans aside from providing a surefire entertainment avenue for them".
Once the cinema opens, it promises to show the latest Hollywood releases as well as other international and regional flicks.
Located on the third floor of Vision City, it will be the first multiplex cinema in Papua New Guinea, consequently creating another avenue of entertainment, where you and your family can have a good time.
