And the Oscar goes to…

New Features make the only one-stop website in Singapore for Movies.

Question: Do you know (approximately) how many movie tickets were purchased in Singapore in 2009?

Answer: 18.5 million!

Singaporeans sure do love their movies! We, at, also love movies and we think you’re going to adore our brand new, one-of-a-kind, one-stop Movies channel as it makes buying each and everyone of those movie tickets a whole lot easier.  

Indeed, to coincide with the recent revamp of the entire website, we’ve added lots of cool and unique-to-Singapore practical features to our Movie channel. They include:

1) The complete list of movie showtimes for all cinemas in Singapore available at a glance, a service offered only on

2) Direct links to major cinema operators’ online booking systems for a hassle free online ticket purchase experience.

3) Exclusive discounts on Golden Village (GV) tickets purchased through, no strings attached! Tickets are priced at $8.80 for weekends (Fridays to Sundays) and $7 for weekdays (Mondays to Thursdays), making them the most affordable tickets available online.

These new features are the ‘cherries’ on top of what was already a pretty cool local Movie channel (or should I say cake?). Launched in November last year,’s Movie section already provided users with the latest movies trailers, updated Hollywood, Bollywood and ‘Asia-wood’ gossip and news, as well as valuable user and expert reviews to help users make decisions on which movies to watch.

So, go and check out our brand new, one-of-a-kind Movie channel. But be warned - you might end up spending so much time there that you’ll miss the start of the movie!
