Despite the countable number of outlets they have (yes only two or three), the outlets that I go to to watch a movie always never fail to satisfy.

I personally am not a picky movie-goer - I don't demand the softest and cosiest seats in the house with first class dining experience. Give me a movie in the dark with surround sound and a chair and I'm actually good to go. Even so, the decor of the place always entices me to go in. Unlike other cinemas such as cathay or GV with dim lighting, Filmgarde actually has brighter lights which make the place look warmer and more cheery.

Even the corridors are brightly lit - the bugis branch is especially nice since the corridors leading to the movie cinemas are furnished with nice sofas and classy glass dividers. How divine.

Pleasant movie experience

Being a frequent visitor to the National Library at Bugis, it inadvertently led to me visiting illuma and hence noticing a cinema with a name that is not really familiar to me : FILMGARDE. Hence, priding myself as someone who won't shun new things but instead try them out, I organised an outing with a group of friends to try out the cinema.

It was overall a really pleasant experience. The screen was able to accomodate swashbuckling action that seemed almost life-like, I liked the layout of the theatres, the seats were comfortable such that my movie experience was spent resting my backside on top of a layer of heaven, and the toilet was nearby.

However, what stopped me from giving the place 5 stars would be the price. Filmgarde charges slightly higher prices as compared to other cinemas, which I deemed an unwise move as Filmgrade does not command a reputation the way Golden Village and Cathay does. While I understand that Filmgarde does not have that many outlets in Singapore and hence it is hard for costs to be spread around, higher prices will deter customers who could simply just cross the road to watch the show at SHAW Bugis, located in Bugis Junction. Moverover, in the long run, it may be labelled as a classy brand which is not in touch with customers whom are in the lower income group. My take on this is that in spite of the slight difference in prices, when word gets around, it tends to get blown out of proportion.
