Focused on Indian movies, the theater quality is pretty good. We have had a good experience here. Its located at a great location which generally draws people. They could improve a bit on the customer comfort.

Its nice to have a dedicated theatre showing indian movies... But as other reviewers pointed out, it IS a TYPICAL Desi place. The staff, especially at the ticket window is extremely arrogant and unfriendly. It is in general not very clean. I sometimes inspect my chair to make sure there is not soda or popcorn on it before I sit.

So why do I give it a higher rating -
The sound system is Awesome (which is why it gets the 4 points)!!! The quality of the visuals is good too.
And you get samosas and paan at the concession stand....
And yes... be sure to watch for the funny Ads they put up in the slideshow before the movie and during the intermission.... some are just hilarious!

So do go check it out especially when you dont really have another choice

so this is your TYPICAL desi place. theatre is not so clean, staff is not helpful or friendly at all. place is usually very crowded esp when new releases come out. i think its also overpriced for an indian movie. could be better! wish there were other theatres around that play indian/bollywood movies.

Been here many times over the last four years to watch Indian movies. The good thing about Naz8 cinemas is that sometimes you get to watch movies almost as soon as they release in India. Also, for most important cricket games, they will screen it for a price.

Now the downside is that the choice of movies is typically wildly varying. Also, the website is pretty shoddy and God forbid if you ever call them for showtimes, you will have to sit through ten minutes of an automated message running through the show time of each movie for each day of the week in a horribly faked dramatic voice!

Other than that its nice. There is a nice snack bar in the lobby where you can grab samosas during the intermissions. One caution: most movies will NOT have trailers shown at the begining... so a 6:30 show will begin at 6:30... they will show the trailers during intermissions (for non-Indians reading this, almost all Indian movies are very long with a break in between)...

Overall good. Could be better.
