Had visited for a movie with family. We normally go in numbers of six or more. Sathyam Cinemas has a " free car parking " a few yards from the cinemas in Royapettah. They provide transport in small vans from the parking area to the cinema area. We need to reach this parking area a little early - so as to facilitate the transport people to and fro. This really helps to de-congest the parking in the cinema area and save a few rupees! D.o not miss the eating place of south Iindian delicacies at Sathyam I.D. - either before or after the movie. We must provide a proof of the cinema tickets at the parking area - to avoid other visitors.

Best cinemascope know in Chennai Sathyam Cinemas. Sathyam is know for its sound quality and picture clarity. The trend has changed such that residents are going to sathyam for watching any movie when it has to be the other way round.
Sathyam is nearby LIC (MountRoad) or walkable from Spencers Chennai. Due to chennai metro construction riding on wheels might confuse the commuters. It is recommended to book tickets prior to the show via online. Sathyam is also famous for its pop corn baked and served with cheese butter mixed with magic masala. We are allowed to mix the masala based on our requirement whereas extra butter will be served on request. Bike parking is spacious but open to sky.
Few years before the discipline of the theater was maintained to an extent such that any whistle or unwanted disturbance to the rest will be thrown out. But now the management has managed to compromise. So it is recommended to book for balcony.

You can't find even a single person in Chennai, who doesn't know Sathyam Cinemas.
Best movie experience in terms of Quality of Sound, Picture and Comfort. Value for Money.
I think this is only cinema in Chennai, where parking charges are too low. Best place to hangout with friends and family.

This place has one of the biggest screen and best sound system (you can feel the deference) in Chennai. The seating arrangement are quite comfortable and has enough leg space. Though the corridors are smaller as compared to Escape however, I found that over all movie experience is best in Sathyam.

The only draw back you may find is the parking. You may need to wait for the parking in the open ground (but the attendants were always there to assist you parking your vehicles).
