Reviewed 21 November 2017

A historical place, now renovated. Once the house of theatres and plays, now hosts movies. Some parts of the place have been rented out to restaurants. Warning: the screen is extremely dim and poor. So don't expect a good viewing experience. The seats are torn and uncomfortable too.

The legendary star theatre of Hatibagan which once used to be a centre of art and culture and attraction for every art lover of Kolkata. Although turned into a movie Hall, I have heard that they still host drama and other events but we watched a bengali movie there. The area has good restaurants nearby so you can always end your movie day with a sumptuous meal.

One of the oldest theatres of Kolkata dates back to British era. Primarily a theatre for dramatic performances, now its a movie hall as well. Located at hatibagan more. I wouldn't recommend it for watching a movie as that isn't what it was built for. Watch a drama performance at this place if you want the true feeling of it

Yesterday, I went to Star Theater to watch movie "Char Adhay". The ambience of Star is excellent. The AC machine was perfectly ok. It was chilling cold inside the theater. The movie started at the right time. Ticket price is also mid range. There are some restaurants inside the complex. One roof top restaurant is also situated here.Car parking area is also available here.
