Prior to 22 July didn't need covid pre testing and there were seats in twos and separated in between which was really good..and max cap. was like 40-50 cos thre front few rows were empty...

Not sure about 22 Jul onwards, i read online pre-testing is required.

Bring a big sack of gold. You'll get a shock when you see how much they charge for a movie ticket nowadays.
Pricing is ridiculous. Upwards of $40, and thats not even including snacks or drinks.
Serious? I'll wait for it on Netflix or Prime then, can also eat and know I'm with somebody! While it doesn't pertain to me, how are young people even supposed to get to know somebody else? I can see the TFR going down to .5 in 10 years time. Damn glad I'm not in my 20~30's anymore. But it also sucks being 3.5x that age as well!!!!
They’ve got senior pricing, but an adult ticket is ridiculously expensive.

Per person? Last time when I was in the cinema, year ago or so, it was ca SGD13-15 per ticket. I quickly checked GV and still see it in that range.
The price I’m referring to is for Gold Class, not regular seating.

Gold class in GV is 43$. But with HSBC card , u can get for 34.5$.

Since last year, we only saw 5-6 movies but we chose to go to Suntec City Gv gold class to reduce interaction. I kinda like it now. Altho can’t do it every week.
Even for $35, it’s ridiculous. Fun to go once in a while, but not sustainable to watch as and when a new film comes out.

Ya its a bit overpriced compared to other countries. Since last year, we saw maybe 7-8 movies in 1.5 years so one movie per 2 months or so. Not all were worth it for the price.

Now, I only go for Gold Class when I feel the movie is worth it and has good reviews. For the time being, I am not going to the normal cinema cuz I feel its not worth it to risk just for a movie.

But then some I cant resist. So occasional Gold Class is ok for me.
