In this day and age of technology, the temptation of downloading movies and ease of streaming them are all too real. But factor in the waiting game for DVD releases, and the ambience and sense of camaraderie of watching movies “live” with fellow movie enthusiasts, and the ticket cost of catching movies on the big screen is a small price to pay.

Larger than life

There are movie experiences, and then there are movie experiences at Cathay Cineplexes. From the self-service kiosks that make transactions fuss-free to the iconic caramel popcorn and plush, spacious seats, Cathay Cineplexes offers a movie experience that is both comfortable and enjoyable.

Cathay Cineplexes’ conveniently located theatres are also a big draw. With seven outlets in neighbourhoods all across Singapore, you could be within walking distance from catching the latest blockbusters on the big screen.

Things get better if you’re a Mastercard cardholder: you can enjoy preferred ticket prices and F&B discounts when you make a purchase at Cathay Cineplexes with your card.

Larger than life

If you’re feeling fancy, upgrade your regular ticket to a Platinum Movie Suites ticket and enjoy extra perks. Your indulgent experience starts with relaxing in a lounge, after which you’ll be ushered into the theatre to your seat: a spacious leather recliner that offers plenty of legroom, and with cushions and throws to keep you warm and toasty throughout the film. For a limited time only, you’ll also be treated to complimentary welcome platters – think tasty treats such as samosas, spring rolls and Mexican chicken wings.
