Singapore Cinema’s Price Guide 2014
Singapore Cinema movie’s price guide – 2014
Undoubtedly, Movies are among the most popular leisure activities in this tiny city-state.
With the success of Ilo Ilo which bagged four awards at the Golden Horse Awards 2013 in Taiwan, Singaporean director Anthony Chen has grabbed the international attention with his impressive story-telling skills. He has also inject a new lease of life into the Singapore’s local filmmakers aspirations to make impact on world cinema stage.
A saying goes – ” A picture (chart) is worth more than a thousand words”, with increasingly complex pricing tiers in Singapore’s cinemas, here we at Couponicious.sg presents the latest cinema price chart. Cathay Cineplexes has recently adjusted their pricing on weekend tickets since the beginning of 2014. A hike of approximate 18% is noticed from $11 to $13 for a normal price ticket for the shows after 6PM on Friday and all sessions on Saturday & Sunday. Despite the price increase, one could still get a discounted price ticket at Cathay Cineplexes with your bank credit/debit cards. With EngWah still paused for renovation works and will only resume operations after mid 2014 (EngWah is slated to open their brand new 10 digital halls at WE-Empress Square in Clementi), our chart is only comparing the 4 major players, ie. GV, Cathay, Shaw & Film Garde on the 2D movie ticket. At the moment, our team are in the midst of compiling data on 3D movie tickets and other premium movie experience such as GV’s Gold Class & Cathay’s Platinum Movie Suite.
