Escapes really it's a modern style in theatres. The theatre consists in third floor of Express Avenue mall. It consists 8 screens I think. The projectors and sound system also good. In that 8 screens there are 8 different themes. There is a facility for booking sofa for couples.

Escape is unarguably one of the best movie experiences you will get. The imax here is amazing. Add to it the chocolate cream bun, the lovely interiors and the joy of paying really affordable prices, Escape should not be kissed. Fair warning: book your movies well in advance on the Wednesday itself

It is a class apart comfort to sit back and watch your choice of entertainment. The Crowd which comes is decent enough. May be they could increase the snack counters.

Being from Bangalore, a city of many malls, was apprehensive about what else to expect here. However, the design and aesthetics of the cinemas and common area are fantastic and hats off to Satyam Cinemas for the design and maintenance.
