Ray of hope for single cinemas in Gurugram


“A decade ago, Gurugram had six single-screen cinemas of which only two survive today — Payal and Raj. But they are running in losses and struggling to survive the countrywide trend of single cinemas going out of business. The number of single-screen cinemas has gone down from 9,710 screens with 91% share of total screens in India in 2009 to less than 71% share in 2017 with 6,780 screens, according to a 2018 report on the Indian media and entertainment (M&E) sector by Ernst & Young and the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI).

Payal and Raj are the last vestiges of single screen theatres that were once an integral and perhaps, the only avenues available for a cinema-viewing experience. The other four — Dev, Shakuntala, Ajit, Raj and Jai — have shut down.”
