This is my favourite cinema as it has really comfortable seats that I don't have to strain my neck to watch the movie when I sit in front (I really don't understand the mechanism of it). The seat is perfectly comfortable that I can doze off while watching a boring movie.
Besides that, I don't have to get irritated because somehow, the audience's heads wouldn't really block the cinema screen unlike at TGV. The seats are also spacious, much more so for the couple seats (The couple seats at TGV aren't really spacious).
Like the name suggest, I think the screen here offers golden experiences to the visitors. However, I will not recommend going to GSC when a new movie just came out without a seat booking. You will be suffocated by the crowd at the ticketing counter whom are trying to figure out what movie to watch. The staffs work quite fast. But if you don't want a long wait, just book a seat through the hotline.
The snack bar also provide quite a number of snacks for you to chew on during your movie. They offer a few choice of popcorn. However, my long time favorite had been caramel popcorn. Don't forget to buy extra! I always seem to finish it before the movie start. I also think it would be better to get the Spritzer instead of the coke. The caramel is already very sweet. So, I guess water would be a better choice.
I've watched movies at the theatres of Golden Screen Cinemas countless amount of times and every single time I come here, it never fails to meet my expectations. The people working at the counter are friendly and efficient and the food stall here is awesome. You have the choice of 1901 hot dogs, potato chips, M&Ms, mashed potatoes and the regular popcorn combo. When it comes to money, I'm more worried about me spending on the food rather the ticket itself.
The seats inside are super comfortable and spacey. I am a tall guy so usually it would be a bit cramped but in here, it's perfect. I've never tried gold class before but the regular seats as well as the couple seats are perfect. The condition of the theatre is so good that it is sure to make you glued to the screen and feel as if you were there in the movie itself.
GSC has transformed tremendously over the years and I love the fact that they're going all out for the best of their patrons. I can now enjoy my favorite movie with great, comfortable seat and the best screen with the best sound ever.
I always go for their discounted ticket fare on Wednesday night. Besides enjoying good movie with my company, I can always avoid the huge weekend crowds by watching movie during weekdays. It's just my way in getting the best deal out in cinema.
Nowadays I always buy my tickets from their website to skip the long queues and to guarantee a seat for some blockbuster movies. It's conveniently easy and hassle free. I never had any bad experience with GSC and for that, this place will always be my number one choice for watching movie.
GSC offers the ease of buying tickets via it's online web portal or via Android app. You can pick and choose what movie you want to watch, set the date ,time and seats, and then pay immediately. I use my Samsung Note to make purchases all the time and upon confirmation of payment, I would get a QR code on my phone which I can use to scan at the check in counter to enter. Everythign is digital and you can opt to not have to que for tickets.
The cinemas come in either normal, 2D or 3D. 2D is special because it features crystal clear HD quality resolution of the movies and provide surround sound which is fantastic. I watched James Bond's Skyfall movie the other day and my ears picked up on the sound of a bullet travelling from behind the theater and all the way to the front. It made the hair on my back stand on end because it sounded so real.
During romantic evenings with my wife, I would grab the couple seats instead. It is basically a comfy sofa located at the first row so you are guaranteed enough hugging space with a nice and clear view of the screen. I like GSC for many reasons and that is why it is my preferred cinema to watch movies.
