Air Conditioning of Multiplexes

Over the past 5 years, India has seen a major revolution in the entertainment industry. The young generation today, believes in working hard, earning well and spending lavishly on recreation. Having all the entertainment facilities such as food courts, shopping malls, super markets, restaurants, theatres, video games parlour, bowling alley and discotheque under one roof is becoming common. A Multiplex is a building complex which provides all these facilities. In a tropical country like India, comfort air conditioning of entertainment centres is inevitable. The first fully air-conditioned Multiplex in India was launched in Ahmedabad four years ago, and after that another five or six Multiplexes have sprouted in Ahmedabad alone. Throughout the country more than a 100 Multiplexes are under construction or already complete and more than 500 are at various stages of planning.
