Movie Theatre with the biggest screens?

Postby nongice626 » Wed, 04 Feb 2009 10:11 am

I went to one on orchard road and it was half the size of the cinema screens I am used to viewing in Bangkok. Any idea?

It varies. Within each complex there are usually a couple of big screens, for blockbusters, action movies and new releases. Smaller screens for less popular movies or movies which have been on release for a couple of weeks and aren't packing them in any more. Lido in Orchard has a biggie, Golden Village at Great World has a good one that was built as an IMAX outlet. Easiest way to check if it's on a big screen is to look up the movie chains online - you can see which screen it's showing on from the seating plan and choose your own seats. Try golden village, Cathay and Shaw cinema websites. There are a couple of other cinema chains but those are the main ones in Orchard.

Its not profitable to have huge screens and a few shows which take up a lot of space where rent is high and margins are low.

you won't get the same experience with thailand in singapore.

You can try Lido 1 (Lido Cineplex) and The Grand Cathay (The Cathay), their screen size should be comparable to the ones you are used to viewing in Bangkok.

Vivocity's "GVmax" screens are 22 meters wide and supposedly among the largest in Asia.
