Mumbai, January 20, 2016
BookMyShow, India's largest online entertainment ticketing platform has partnered with the G7 multiplex and Maratha Mandir theatre in Mumbai.
The portal has commenced bookings for the theatres across its platforms – mobile app, website and mobile website.
Among the oldest cinemas in Mumbai, the theatres were also part of the success of several Bollywood blockbusters of the recent past, a press release from BookMyShow said.
Mr. Ashish Saksena, COO, Cinemas at BookMyShow, said, “Being associated with the city’s most iconic cinema halls like G7 Multiplex and Maratha Mandir is a very prestigious development for us. We have always focussed on consumer demands and firmly believe – we’ll go where our customers want us to go”.
“These cinemas have been a very popular destination over the years and attract the masses across the city. By partnering with BookMyShow, access to these movie theatres will now be friction free," he said.
Mr Manoj Desai, Executive Director, G7 Multiplex and Maratha Mandir said, “We are very happy and excited on our association with BookMyShow and we wish them all the best."
G7, Mumbai’s oldest multi-screen theatre located in Bandra West, has seven cinema halls called Gaiety, Galaxy, Gemini, Gossip, Gem, Grace and Glamour.
Maratha Mandir, with a 1000+ seater capacity, first opened its doors almost 60 years back and also has created a record after screening the legendary movie Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge for over 1000 weeks since its release in 1995.
"With a large number of city dwellers emotionally connected to G7 multiplexes and Maratha Mandir, BookMyShow’s association with the same will be a perfect blend of technology, convenience and entertainment for the masses," the release said.
