Case Study
  Case Study on Multiplexes: “ There’s no business like show business”.The above truism comes to life when we consider the amount of turnover churned by the multiplexes that have mushroomed up in the past decade. Predominantly single-screen theaters ruled the roost when it came to movie theaters  but with changing times the era of multiplexes was ushered in with cinema halls being converted into the ultimate  weekend getaway for the thronging millions. With around ! ## active screens! $ndia is under screened. %hina! which produces far lesser films than $ndia has & !### screens while the '( has )&!###. $ndia’s screen density stands low at * screens per million populations. There is a need of at least *#!### screens as against the current ! ##. This gives multiplex operators enough room to grow as the traditional single-screen theatres do not have the financial wherewithal nor do they en+oy tax incentives.,ver the last few years! multiplexes have emerged as a trend in urban $ndia. ultiplexes are essentially cinemas with three or more screens. They provide a uality viewing experience and are generally located around shopping malls to increase footfalls in these malls./ach screen in a multiplex has a small seating capacity in the range of  #-)## seats as compared to single screen cinemas which have capacities in the range of 0##-!*## seats.The multiplexes are ensuring everyone is taken care of as movie theatres have been amalgamated with retail outlets! shopping malls! bowling alleys and food courts etc. The multiplex players are bending over each other to cater to the needs of the customer and make it a family experience.This is only the icing on the multiplex owner’s cake and this icing only gets thicker with time as millions of revenue is on stake with the loyal customers coming to get a good deal. The heavyweights in this arena are P12 cinemas! 3ig %inemas 4owner 5657 group8! $nox and 9un %inemas.    Case Study on Shreejii: $t was :.## pm and standing in front of the store 5+ay saw the busy 7hatkopar 7 2oad still filled with commuters as his employees rolled the shutters of his store down. 5+ay is the third generation businessman of (hree+i ,pticians and %ontact ;ens %linic.<e slid back in memory and remembered his father and grandfather who ran the showroom. $t was the same store of about ) # s. ft.  which they managed with a handful of employees.
