Cathay Cineleisure Orchard expands with three new halls

Frustrated by never being able to catch your fancied film in time? Or kept waiting forever for that summer hit which is just too darn popular for one cinema screen? Then fret not movie-goers, Cathay Cineplex Cineleisure Orchard has a treat for you.

The downtown-based Cineplex has now expanded with the addition of three new cinema halls, elevating the establishment’s overall capacity to 15 halls and 2,281 seats.  This grand gesture officially makes Cathay Cineplex Cineleisure Orchard the largest cinema in Singapore.

Movie-buffs will now be spoilt for choice not just from the widened range of movies and timings, but also from the added variety of cinematic experiences featuring two newly integrated Platinum Movie Suites and a new hall constructed specially for couples.

After enjoying a positive two year run at The Cathay Cineplex on Handy Road, the Platinum Movie Suites have now found their second home in Orchard. With a lushly private seating capacity of 24 and 16 seats, the Platinum Movie Suites boast a luxurious cinematic experience with pampering comfort. These privileges extend to the usage of the Platinum Movie Lounge, which comes complete with a gourmet spread of food and beverages, a Wi-Fi network and iPads, and even your own personalised butler.

Prices for this VIP experience are set at $28 for weekdays and $38 for weekends, and at $35 and $45 respectively for 3D films. The classy treatment is welcome to all ages, with 1-for-1 student promotions at $28 for two, and $23 for two for senior citizens. And if you’re a World MasterCard card member, you even get to enjoy a $5 discount.

But for those who wish to feel less like a king or queen, and wish to huddle up cosily with their loved ones while sharing a bucket of popcorn, there’s the freshly introduced cinema hall filled exclusively with couple seats, which even includes some thoughtfully placed side tables. Now viewers don’t have to struggle past bulky armrests for some affection. Just remember to keep it PG kids. 

All 15 cinema halls at Cathay Cineplex Cineleisure Orchard boast the latest in sound and visual projection, including 4K Digital Projection System, 3D technology and High-Frame Rate (HFR) capabilities and Dolby Surround 7.1 sound system.
