How adventurous are you? If your idea of living on the edge is purchasing movie tickets standing in the middle of the road where you are completely at the mercy of the vehicles that whiz past, then Manohar should become your favorite place.
Actually, finding the theater in itself can give you that adrenalin rush. It is located near Secunderabad Station, but the whole set-up appears no different from the innumerable lodges that have sprung up there. Say you somehow manage to find the hall and survive the ticket-buying routine. What do you get in return? Spit stains on walls, litter strewn on floors, rigid seats, a very assembly-line screen, an excuse for a canteen, and your continued existence. The theater is air-cooled, and screens Telugu flicks that are given an open run.
A place meant solely for the most devoted, fervent and zealous fans of cinema, Manohar certainly isn't where you'd go on a first date.

SN seems to have condoned the two pillars that stand right in the middle of the theater as if it were a mandap and not a theater!! I do not know if they have been dismantled in the recent years, though.
