There’s something magical about the cinematic experience. Sure, Netflix in your pyjamas at home may be comfortable, but no home theatre can really compare with the hushed excitement of a cinema, when the lights go down and the trailers start to play.
Golden Village Multiplex (GV) knows all about the cinematic experience, and it’s bringing it back – bigger, and better.
Newly opened on 6 October 2017, the Paya Lebar outlet at Singpost Centre promises an improved movie night experience. Brace yourselves for vivid colour and high contrast images with the new Barco Smart Laser Projection screens.
This laser projection system also pairs beautifully with 3-D movies – watching the trailer for Thor: Ragnarok had me leaning back from the hammer throws. For Westies like me, Paya Lebar can be too far – but don’t worry! GV is aiming to convert all its cinemas to laser projectors.
You can also look forward to a much more comfy movie experience. True, theatre seats are pretty comfortable these days, but GV Paya Lebar takes this a step further with the DUO DELUXE hall. With its cushy, leatherette design, you’ll find yourself melting back into your seat.
More than just the in-cinema experience, you can also look forward to a cosy cafe chat with friends after catching the film. I know I’d love to sit down with my movie kakis and gush over every detail, post-movie. Except now, you don’t have to hustle off to the nearest Starbucks… you can chill out at the grab & Gold Cafe.
Cosy furniture and shelves of movie paraphernalia create a comfortable ambience that film geeks will adore. And if you want something to munch on as you chat, grab & Gold has you covered.
Choose from savoury bites like the Cheese Basil Pizza ($7.50) – a must-try for its thin crust topped with stringy, flavourful cheese – or sweet snacks like the uniquely flavoured cake selection.
I particularly enjoyed the Kopi Gao Siew Dai Cake ($8). Bitter as a cup of strong black coffee should be, the flavour of the coffee cream neatly reduced the sweetness of the cake base. Other interesting cakes include the Thai Tea Pound Cake ($6), Lavender Wild Berry Cake ($8), Blue Velvet Lychee Cake ($8) and Puteri Salat Cake ($8). The last one is very Singaporean – a coconut and pandan-layered confection with red beans inside.
Perfect for chilling after movies, the grab & Gold Cafe is also open to non-moviegoers. Imagine that, a space for meetings and chit-chats that doesn’t chase you away if you stay too long!
So head down to Golden Village Paya Lebar for a high-quality movie experience, and it’s not just the kickass movie screens I’m talking about.
