    Great big theatre! Love the comfy seats, superb sound system, cinema projector's clarity, and the nearby toilet! But don't seat too near, the headrest of the seat in front of you could block your view

    Awesome experience. Better to get seats in the middle but doesn't really matter much. The sound quality and pictures are amazing. Worth watching a 3D movie.

    Watching your favourite movie on IMAX 3D is totally worth it. This is a really good cinema. They got about 3 in 1 place.

    The carpark is on per entry charge on every sunday and public its a good day to catch a movie and do some shopping. Come early though.

    At $20/tic, it's twice the cost of normal screens.Best to book early.The good seats r maximum 4-5 rows from the back and centre block.Anything further up front is too in your face and not worth it.

    if you're watching on a weekend and plans to buy some movie snacks, you better be early as the queues go crazy minutes before the movie starts.

    One of the oldest cinema in town. Have hosted many A-List celebrities from Hollywood and Hong Kong.

    Good location. Sheltered all the way from orchard mrt. After renovation, seats r comfortable with firm backs and headrest.

    Try not to sit at the side seats of the hall... you'd get neck-aches trying to get an optimal angle for the 3D effect. Centre seats would be the best.

    Great place to watch movies. Not as crowded. But if it ain't hall 1 or 2, the rest are squeezy, not as comfy and lack quality in sound. Hall 1 & 2 kicks major butt.

    Try to get seats in the centre column. Anything at the sides, n u will get a sprained neck.

    One with the best seats in town & most comprehensive range of movie theatres to choose from!

    After revamp, it's big and spacious! Perfect for a movie when staying with is. Literally steps away!

    If you have already bought a ticket online, you'll still have to get there at least 30 mins before show time to pick it up in case of long lines.

    Seats have a headrest which I really like, but the seats are joined so if the person beside you moves a lot you feel it.

    Classy. Small theaters except the IMAX of course. Gets crowded every time.

    $19 a pop, and discounts are not valid. So you might want to choose which movies to IMAX.

    IMAX 3D isn't that amazing. Go for normal 3D movies or digital instead.

    This screen is def not IMAX. Plus, the first 5 rows are SO close that it's more a rip off than something else. Oh yeah; the sound quality is average - missed entire conversation because of that!
  • Ismael K.

    Watched Dark Night (2D) and is bit disappointed, wasn't that much better to justify e price diff. Might try 3D next time to see if the price difference was justifiable.
