History[edit]

PVR Saket

The company has its origin as Priya Cinema in South Delhi, which was bought by Ajay Bijli's father in 1978, who also owned a trucking business, Amritsar Transport Co. In 1988, Bijli took over the running of the cinema hall, which was revamped in 1990, and its success led to the founding PVR Cinemas.[1][2]

In 2003, ICICI Ventures invested Rs 40 crore in PVR when Village Roadshow decided to pull out of the partnership.[3] In 2012, Kanakia group owned CineMAX cinema chain was bought by Cine Hospitality Private Ltd, a subsidiary of PVR Cinemas for 395 crore (US$59 million), making PVR the largest cinema chain in India.[4][5] In May 2016, DLF group owned DT Cinemas was bought by PVR Cinemas for 433 crore (US$64 million).[6][7] From PVR’s Gold Class and Mainstream Cinemas, Director’s Cut to the latest format- PVR Icon, the company has made exceptional technology like the IMAX® and the ECX (Enhanced Cinema Experience), 4 DX accessible to its audience. Recently PVR Cinemas ventured into a new cinema concept- Superplex in Noida. The cinema have 15 screens with IMAX, 4DX, Gold Class, Playhouse(Specially for Kids) and mainstream auditoriums. PVR Cinemas has invested ₹48 crores in this new venture.
