I visited this place with my friend to watch play Siachen written by Anwar Maqsood. A play Siachen was telling us story of army and sacrifices of Pakistanis. Theater was very outstanding and have a good security. Place is good for families to watch decent dramas or play. I enjoy a lot with my friends and Siachen drama was amazing.

Usually not a place that you can plan for special visit. Usually exhibitions are planned here, School or college functions are arranged. Even at times Singers do conduct Concerts here. I had the opportunity to attend the concert but the sitting is on bricked steps. Usually a fine place for normal rates.

The design is unique and have great potential of being a landmark building. The maintenance is much to be desired. The landscaping is also not properly planned.
