Mukta A2 Cinemas & Zee Classic come together to revive golden days of Indian cinema
Classic movies have captured the heart of cinema lovers time and again and have reinforced the belief that ‘Old is Gold’. Such is the power of ‘classics’ that fans from different age group happen to be familiar with the cast and dialogues, even if they haven’t watched the movie. With the advent of cutting edge technology and digitalization, anyone can watch these movies anytime, anywhere. However, the joy of watching ‘Classics’ on the Big Screen in heritage cinemas continues to remain unmatched.
In keeping with the spirit of love for classics, Mukta A2 Cinemas – one of India’s most reputed and esteemed chain of cinemas and Zee Classic with its brand proposition ‘Woh Zamaana Kare Deewana’ are charging ahead to bring back these super hits from the era gone by, on to the silver screen.
