Singapore's newest cineplex, with only two branches rather close to each other in Bugis and Kallang, Filmgarde is not very well known to most. Hence, I feel like seats in Filmgarde are less quickly snapped up than in other cinemas, for instance the Shaw cinema in Bugis Junction a stone's throw away. It's more likely that you'll be able to get good seats in Filmgarde for popular movies.

The quality of the movie-watching experience is quite good, and I really enjoyed the surround sound system. It makes quite a large difference, especially when watching a movie like Frozen! The popcorn tastes fresh and better than average, too.

Unfortunately, Filmgarde's prices are slightly steeper than that of other cinema's.

It's been a very long time sine my first ever visit to Filmgarde but it left me with a good impression. I visited Filmgarde back when it was still housed in the building called Illuma which has apparently already been renamed to Bugis+. It was still relatively new then so everything was clean and spick and span. I went there to catch the movie "Dear John" with my friend and found a suitable timing and tickets were also affordable.

The best thing I remember about Filmgarde was their popcorn. I was sick of tasteless and bland popcorn from other theatres but was pleasantly surprised at how well-coated and tasty Filmgarde's popcorn was. Seats were also comfortable and well-placed and I liked the spacious legroom for me to stretch out my legs.

That was then, but I'm not sure about how Filmgarde is now. Hopefully it has still retained its quality or improved on it. The next time I'm in the Bugis vicinity and itching to watch a movie, I'll definitely pay Filmgarde a visit once more.

Filmgarde has nice spacious clean cinema halls complete with a state of the art sound system. The visuals are spectacular as well with most movies being screened in the digital format, producing a crystal sharp quality.

The only gripe I have with Filmgarde is how inaccessible their showtimes are. Unlike other major cinemas, I am unable to check show timings using an app on my phone and checking show timings on their website on my mobile tends to be rather cumbersome. Another issue I have is that ticket prices tend to be rather expensive as they run fewer promotions (e.g. credit card) in comparison to other cinemas.
