The screen has been developed by StrongMDI, a 3D/2D projection screen manufacturer. All speakers for the screen are from QSC Audio Products and for playback, Dolby CP950 sound processor will be used, the theatre managedment added.
The first screening on the mega screen will be Avatar: Way of Water, which is scheduled to be released on December 16.
Movie enthusiasts are expressed their excitement over the announcement. “Your continuous efforts to bring the world class experience is really appreciated. I hope this hardwork you’ve been doing for the past few months pays off with every film starting with Avatar 2, sir. Best wishes and can’t wait,” a Twitter user responded to the video shared by Mohan Kumar.
“Madly waiting to witness Avatar in large screen. I am a non-local, but for this film, I will come to hyderabad and I will watch it large format,” another netuzen with a twitter handle Jnvssteja said.
However, some people pointed out that the threatre does not have IMAX technology. Though the Prasads was the first-ever theatre in the city to have an IMAX large screen, it stopped IMAX screening later when they adopted digital screening.
Located near NTR Gardens in Khairtabad, Prasads Multiplex is one of the prominet theatres in Hyderabad.
