Cathay Orchard

Post by carpediemxing216 » Sat, 25 Aug 2007 5:29 pm

I usually go the GV in Vivo coz it is the nearest to my house. Quite comfy though a bit cold which is very common in cinemas here. Have been to Cathay Orchard to watch Bourn Ultimatum recently and fall in love with it with its comfortable seats and not-too-strong air con (the sound system is perhaps too good though) :). However, there is one thing which I found very inconvenient in Cathay Orchard: No restroom on the corridor outside the theatres. There is only one toilet in one theatre. My friend and I got so embarrassed as we went into the toilet after a guy coz we took it for granted that there was ladies and gents. When the guy turned around the close the door he saw us which clearly made him quite shocked and he murmured sth like only one person can use the toilet at a time. :???: I would like to dig a hole and jump in at that moment. :lol:

i think not only the cinemas but nearly everywhere in singapore is freezing! the sixth floor of the plaza on orchard road is like sitting on top of a snow peaked mountain. i think the cathay orachrd isnht oo bad, i still bring a warm jumper but its managable like that. in the line of movies the bourne ultimatum was amazing! i definately recommend.

i choose my own seat in GV.
of course you don't get to see the seating plan but i normally request for things like aisle seat and my other preference.
they will then tell me if whichever row is fine or i'd prefer somewhere else.

Went to the Shaw Lido Sunday to see Rata(hard to keep me interested)tiulle.

Be warned about seeing movies played in Lida Classic. The 2 LARGE columns on either side of the SMALL screen in distracting.

Lido 3 is the best.

Bourne Untimatum was a great movie but not as good as Supremecy and certainly not as good as Identity.

What I did not understand is that if you remember his birthday was actually not the address of the training center. If you also remember at the end of part 2 on his paperwork that Pamela had it was listed as 4/15/71 and he was born in Nixa Missouri. Which strangely enough my birthday is 3/15/71 and my home town is Nixa Missouri.

Hmm not sure if I should leak out my lil spot for movies. Oh well. I usually go to Balestier to watch movies. Every time I've gone, weekends included, the cinema would only have about 20 - 40 people. The seats aren't larny like the new cinemas and all that, but I do like my space when I watch a movie and of course, it's pretty quiet there too.
And the have the best Teh-tarik at the counter next to the popcorn vendor!

Have found Cathay to be a good experience, even survived a spur of the moment urge to see a movie, despite concerned friends saying I wasn't dressed enough to avoid fact the aircon was v pleasant.
