    • How to get movie ticket discounts at cinemas in Singapore all-year-round

      Remember the good old days when movie tickets were $7 and student tickets were $5? Those were pretty much the only two ticket prices we ever had to remember.

      Nowadays, tickets can cost you anywhere from $8.50 to $30, depending on what type of movie it is and which format (2D, 3D, IMAX, IMAX 3D for example) it is screened in.

      But don’t worry if those prices seem steep, there are also a whole bevy of discounts that different cinemas offer.

      They do change from time to time, but don’t worry, we’ve got the latest discounts as of 21 April right here. You don’t have to read the fine print (and for some cinemas, the fine print is so tiny it is literally pixellated when you zoom in), we’ve done the homework for you.

      “Standard” tickets refer to regular cinema tickets, and are not inclusive of special events, sneak previews. They also do not apply to the “first week titles” or “opening titles” movies for some of the cinemas, which refers to tickets bought in the week when the films premiere.

       

      Golden Village

      • A POSB/DBS card will get you discounts at Golden Village.
      • Golden Village has three types of “special” cinema halls
        – GVmax (larger screen and more space between seats)
        – D-Box (seats can move for a 4D experience)
        – Gold Class (premium seats)

      Shaw Cinemas

      • An OCBC card will get you discounts at Shaw Cinemas.
      • If you’re a student, the cheapest tickets for you are mostly at Shaw Cinemas.
      • If you’re a senior citizen, the cheapest tickets for you are at Shaw Cinemas or Filmgarde Cineplex.
      • SAFRA card members get discounts at Shaw Cinemas now.
      • Some promotions for Shaw Cinemas do not apply to all their outlets, like their Lido and Century Square branches.

      WE Cinemas

      • Besides OCBC and POSB/DBS, the other major banks’ cards will get you discounts at WE Cinemas.

      Filmgarde Cineplex

      • If you’re a senior citizen, the cheapest tickets for you are at Shaw Cinemas or Filmgarde Cineplex.

      General Notes

      You will generally not be able to get a discount on public holidays and the eve of public holidays.

      The most expensive days to watch films on are: Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day, Chinese New Year Eve, and Chinese New Year Day 1 and 2. There are virtually no offers on those days.

      *All discounts are accurate as of 21 April, 2017.

    • Sorry Golden Village very money grubbing nowadays, all those discounts you mentioned must be either through web order or automated ticketing machines, if anytime you go there and find that their machines break down, I don't think they will give you a discount
