Limketkai Center has undeniably the biggest cinemas in the city. Of course, Don Lim Ket Kai was well known for his cinemas in Capistrano Street, and these 4 in-mall cinemas were once the mall’s crown jewels. It has an iconic lobby adorned with 8 crystal chandeliers in 8 squares lit by orange neon lights.
These are now being slowly renovated to make way for a more modern design, as evidenced by the released renders. Seen in these pictures are big scaffolds, and ceiling renovation works are bound to start soon. We don’t have a concrete date on when the cinema renovations will finish, but one source has stated a July 2014 deadline. If this is true, Limketkai is poised to reclaim its former glory of being the premiere cinema destination in the city.
