dubai Golden Cinema uttama villainThe culture of rising multiplexes is causing a great threat to standalone cinema houses in many countries. This growing trend is going to bring down Dubai’s one and only standalone cinema houses, ‘Golden Cinema’ (in Bur Dubai) from Sunday and the last film to be screened in this independent cinema house would be Kamal Haasan’s ‘Uttama Villain’.

This independent cinema house in Bur Dubai has been a proud independent theatre for screening Indian cinemas aka Bollywood Hindi movies and also south movies from Kollywood and Mollywood. Our South Superstars like Kamal Haasan and Rajnikanth reigned the land of water taxis and sand dunes.

Golden Cinema, earlier called as Plaza Cinema has many times entertained the poor labourers even, screening movies for free. Like Maratha Mandir Theatre in Mumbai which gave dream run for cult movie ‘Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge’ because of its proximity to Mumbai Railway Station, Golden Cinema too has been a crowd puller with easy access from the surrounding metro rail, bus station and taxi stand in the area.
