This theater was made 70mm A/c in 1985 and NSB's “Devalayam” is the first film to have a 50-day run in that theater and NSK’s “Simhasanam” is the first 100 days film in that theater. Chitralaya 70mm A/c is also the first theater in A.P. to have a film to be houseful for 100 days in it with Hero Krishna's maiden directorial venture “Simhasanam.”
With 45 direct 100 days films, ANR is in a very strong position with no one to cross this figure in near future.
He is the first hero to have a hatrick in Vizag in the year 1977; Chakradhari - Chitralaya (February 3); Aalumagalu - Navrang (March 17); Bangaru Bommalu - Jyothi (April 14, 1977). Within 70 days gap, this hatrick is the fastest hatrick in the history of telugu color films (Along with Rajahmundry with the same films).
