Since the time the pandemic set in in the city, Citi Centre shopping mall, like all other shopping and cinema complexes have seen dark days. And taken some time to re-open and recover, business-wise.
Citi Centre, located at the east end of Dr. Radhakrishnan Salai, Mylapore never resurrected itself. It remained in the dark, save for some lively activity.
Today, its promoters seem to be banking on a new avatar taking off. The major part of this complex is under extensive reconstruction.
Only the Westside lifestyle store in an independent block on the west side of the complex is well lit, spacious and welcoming, with shoppers checking it out.
On the top floors, the INOX theatre screens have been abuzz, mostly kept alive by some popular movies screened here, like Part 1 of Mani Ratnam’s Ponniyin Selvan, that is still drawing movie-goers and was sold out this Deepavali season.
The food court above is also abuzz, mainly patronised by movie-goers.
