Golden Village Multiplex has opened the much awaited, renovated Golden Village Tiong Bahru. The refurbished cinema has five halls and comes fully equipped with 789 green Grandeur cinema seats and 11 handicapped seats. Some renown home remodeling contractors did some of their greatest work in these halls. These spacious seats come with ergonomic features that make movie watching a comfortable experience. Its cinema halls are also equipped with Induction Loop, a technology that makes it easier for hearing impaired individuals to fully appreciate a movie’s audio.
Aspiring to deliver an “Easy, Express and Efficient” movie experience, GV Tiong Bahru comes with Automated Ticketing Machines that make it quick and hassle-free for cinemagoers to purchase tickets and food using their credit cards, pre-paid cards or cash. Patrons who have booked online can enter movie halls using Quick Tix®, a QR code sent to their mobile phones which can be scanned at the cinema’s two-lane auto gate. There is also a dedicated express pick-up counter for food and beverage which have been pre-ordered online.
The reopening of the cinema was met with much enthusiasm by Tiong Bahru residents. The estate is home to several generations of Singaporean families and working expatriates, and has become famous in recent years for its lively café scene. Even during the renovations, patrons often checked if the cinema was open, hoping to watch movies without leaving the comfort of their neighbourhood. For many residents, GV Tiong Bahru is the site of fond memories, where they first fell in love with movies.
GV Tiong Bahru is the last GV cinema to go through major upgrades in recent years. The refurbishment of GV’s cinemas started with GV Yishun in 2010, followed by GV Jurong Point in April 2012, GV Plaza in December 2012, GV Grand, Great World City in 2013, GV Bishan in 2014 and GV Tampines in 2015. The upgrading of GV’s cinemas is testament of the company’s commitment to providing state-of- the-art cinema facilities to moviegoers. It also shows that the cinema industry continues to thrive amidst alternative entertainment options such as streaming sites.
Residents of Tiong Bahru can look forward to exciting promotions. They can get a SGD2 discount from each ticket purchased from GV’s website or via the booking app iGV when they purchase a minimum of four tickets. Patrons of GV Tiong Bahru will also get a chance to win exciting prizes such as electronic gadgets, travel and shopping vouchers monthly when they book tickets using the Automated Ticketing Machines.
Moviegoers can now purchase tickets from GV Tiong Bahru’s box office, the GV website, Automated Ticketing Machines, and iGV app (available on Google Play and Apple App Store).
