What is the difference between Insignia and others like PXL/IMAX/4DX/MX4D?
We have written a detailed article covering PVR’s PXL screen and INOX MX4D as well. If you read those articles, you will realise that those two and others have more to do with technology. Be it the picture quality, sound effects, curved screen, 4D experience, etc.
Insignia, however, lays some focus on technology but is more about luxury and making one feel like a king or a queen. For someone who wants the best of both worlds – movie watching experience and luxury – Insignia is the go-to place. For someone who wants to experience the best of the movie-watching experience only, Insignia may not provide that sort of an experience.
How many Insignia screens are there in India?
Insignia screens are actually present in almost all major cities of India. Not all INOX screens may have it though.
What does the word Insignia actually mean?
Now we know what is Insignia theatre. However, what does the word itself mean? Insignia refers to a sign or a symbol that depicts a certain position in a group or an organisation. For example, a crown indicates that a person is a king or a queen.
