Basusree Cinema, established on 19th December 1947 with the advent of the long awaited and hard earned Independence of our country has served as the ultimate pleasure for the passionate movie goers of the city since inception. From Satyajit Ray’s classic Pather Panchali, the timeless Mughal-e-Azam, famed Antony Pheringee to the recent blockbusters~ this single screen hall still manages to entice everyone who visits the imposing building.
This was the cradle of cultural music and cinema where eminent superstars like Uttam Kumar, Satyajit Ray, Amitabh Bachhan, Hemanta Mukhopadhyay, Shyamal Mitra, Bhanu Bandyopadhyay and the likes have walked the premises and it also used to be the ideal hangout place for the stars of those times. Basusree still carries the nostalgic and historical feel reminiscent of its past heritage and glory even after so many years. However, the hall has evolved keeping pace with time resulting in a unique blend of heritage and modernisation. Till this day it offers a splendid movie going experience for people of all age groups offering adequate comfort and refreshments.
