Kulraj Broadway, the first theatre in Mumbai to have a Barco Auro 11.1 speaker layout, will open its doors soon and will screen movie director Subhash Ghai’s new movie Kaanchi, which is also the first Bollywood movie mixed in the Auro 11.1.

Mukesh Gupta, C.E.O of Kulraj Broadway said, “When we first heard Auro 11.1 in action, we were immediately convinced that this was an invaluable asset, creating an immersive, audiovisual experience for our customers. The sound is so natural; it’s like your part of the action on-screen.”

R&S, Barco’s long-time partner in India, handled the installation and systems integration.

Brian Claypool, senior director of strategic business development at Barco said, “Both the installation of the Auro 11.1 technology at Kulraj Broadway and Subhash Ghai’s support of the format are major achievements for Barco. We are much honored to be able to launch this technology in Bollywood with such visionary partners.”
