AP CM Chandrababu Naidu has given his nod to the proposal made by Kauphy Talkies.CBN agreed to set up nearly 100 mini theaters in 52 bus stations across the state. About 100 theatres will come up across AP bus stands in the first phase. Major bus stations like Vijayawada, Vizag, Palakollu and Tirupati were shortlisted for implementing the idea.
The proposal was made by Kauphy talkies and AP CM found potential in the proposal and eased norms to set up theatres. CBN was impressed with the small theatres concept and immediately ordered RTC MD to identify places for setting up them. He ordered MD to make exhibitors to consult the respective MROs directly and get their chosen locations sanctioned.The new idea will provide much needed relief for the passengers waiting for long hours. Each theatre will accommodate 130 viewers. The ticket rates are ranging between Rs 50 and Rs 80 per head.As per reports TS CM KCR also supports the idea and would take a call soon.
