Delhi is a city of film lovers. Watching a movie with friends and family is one of the most enjoyable activities to do in the Indian capital. Besides plush multiplexes and luxurious private screenings, there are some historic single-screen cinemas in the city too. If catching a good flick with a bucket of popcorn and soda in hand is how you prefer to unwind, then these are the best cinemas in Delhi to do it.
While PVR has screens all around the capital, PVR Promenade stands out because of its location. The cinema is located in DLF Promenade Mall in Vasant Kunj, one of the most sought-after malls in Delhi with great shopping and dining out options. DLF Promenade is tucked in between Ambience Mall and DLF Emporio, a luxury galleria.
A lot of single-screen cinemas found it hard to keep up once the multiplex boom began in the city. M Cinemas is one of those few old-time cinemas which survived the clash. Previously known as Sapna Cinema, it has been restored into a posh venue but it still provides the intimate film watching experience that the cinemas of yore were known for. Tickets prices are a little steep but its worth paying for. The only negative is that there isn’t much to do in the neighbourhood. If you don’t want to head home post the film, you can visit the nearby Greater Kailash, M Block Market.
This high-end cinema in Delhi provides a fancy film watching experience. Not only are their swish recliners uber comfortable but they also pamper you with pillows and blankets. A personal attendant is always at hand should you require any service during the film. They also have an extensive gourmet food menu in case you’re craving something more than just snacks. PVR Director’s Cut also has a ‘Movies On Demand’ service for private screenings.

INOX Eros One
INOX Eros One is a single screen cinema located in the quiet neighbourhood of Jangpura and is one of the few places in Delhi where you can get a ticket for less than Rs. 300 (£3.5). Since Jangpura is a residential area, a lot of families can be seen having an outing together at INOX Eros One. There are places like McDonald’s and Barbeque Nation in the same building if you want to grab a bite before or after the movie.
