Rank4 out of 37 attractions in Kolkata
If Mumbai is the commercial cinema capital of india, Kolkata is the place for art- films. Ace film makers such as Satyajit Ray, Mrinal Sen, Ritwick Ghatak were the people who are the heroes in the Cinema Revolution of Bengal. The later makers such as Rituporno Ghosh, Aparna Sen, Suman ghosh, Srijit Mukerji and others have carried on the legacy like none better. Now, Nandan in Kolkata is a modern cinema complex managed and supervised by the State Governement. It shares its boundaries with the Rabindra Sadan and was inaugrated by the legendary Satyajit Ray, who also designed the logo here. Not only is this a place for watching movies but it is also a famous hangout spot for all ages. The Annual Bengali Film Festival also takes place in the Nandan Complex. Regular cultural shows and movie premieres are also organized here.

Reviews of Nandan West Bengal Film Centre • 1
Nandan is a government sponsored centre in the heart of Kolkata that was inaugurated by the state to cultivate film awareness. It has multiple screens for showcasing movies and it shares its boundaries with the Rabindra Sadan and Academy of Fine Arts. Rabindra Sadan is a cultural centre where one can always walk in by paying a minimal fee to watch a play. Nandan complex is the best place to spot the city’s intelligentsia, tollywood stars and the college crowd. Around the Nandan comlex one can also buy prints of paintings by famous Bengali Painters and terracotta items. To get an idea of the art scene in Kolkata one can simply walk and explore the area between Rabindra Sadan and Park Street area. I can assure you that one can easily spot around at least seven art galleries in this stretch.
