Star Cineplex opens Friday in empty Rajshahi
After Dhaka and Chittagong, Star Cineplex, the country’s largest multiplex chain, is heading to Rajshahi. A new Cineplex branch will open next Friday (January 13) in Rajshahi, a beautiful city rich in history and tradition. After that, from January 14, the general public can buy tickets and watch movies there.
Mesbah Uddin Ahmed, Senior Director of Media and Marketing Department of Star Cineplex, said prominent Rajshahi personalities and stars from the entertainment world will attend the Grand Opening Ceremony.
He said this cineplex was built with a hall in Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Hi-Tech Park adjacent to Bulanpara Eye Dam in Rajshahi. There are 172 places here. As always, all the facilities of a world-class movie theater, including the aesthetic environment, the sound system with the latest technology, the giant screen are available here.
Star Cineplex President Mahbub Rahman Ruhel said of the new branch, “Rajshahi is a traditional city in the country. There are many moviegoers who expect a multiplex like Star Cineplex. Many have sent us requests through various channels. I am happy to respond to this request. We’re trying to expand Star Cineplex across the country, so people across the country have the opportunity to watch movies in world-class theaters.
It must be said that there were seven cinemas in Rajshahi even in the nineties. They were filled with new movies throughout the year. But after 2010, movie theaters began to close. The “Upahar” cinema hall was finally closed in 2018. As a result, the city on the banks of the Padma became completely empty. Those affected are hoping audiences will return to the theater via Star Cineplex to bridge that gap.
It should be noted that on October 8, 2004, Star Cineplex, the country’s first multiplex cinema, started its journey at Bashundhara City Shopping Mall in the capital. It currently has 5 branches in Dhaka and 1 in Chittagong. Branches are located at Shimando Sambhar (formerly Rifles Square) in Dhanmondi, SKS (Sena Kalyan Sanstha) Tower in Mohakhali, Military Museum in Sony Square and Vijay Sarani in Mirpur and Bali Arcade Mall in Chittagong. Apart from this, the construction works of new branches in Uttara and Bogra of Dhaka are continuing.
