The multiplex is also disabled-friendly as roomy seats, specially designed lavatories and exclusive lanes from the shopping complex to the cinema are made available for the handicapped.

“All this while we had to travel to either Kuantan or Kuala Lumpur just to catch up with latest blockbusters,” she said.
Noor Diyannah felt that is more economical for movie buffs with the existence of multiplex in Terengganu as time and money could be saved on transportation to catch a movie in Kuantan, Pahang.

“Its often a tiring drive from here to Kuantan but it is all over now with a cinema at our own turf,” he said.
Guna hoped that the new cinema in Kerteh would screen the latest Rajini Kanth movie Enthiran.
“You will be surprised to know that many Japanese and European tourists patronising my restaurant would ask me where they could watch Enthiran here,” he added.
