Shaw Theatres Balestier Reopening With 11 Cinema Halls

If you’ve been planning to catch a movie at the cinema, there’s no better time than now.

On 30 Mar, Shaw Theatres Balestier will be reopening to the public, almost four years after it closed for renovations.

It will feature 11 cinema halls, along with an interior design paying tribute to the heritage district it’s in.

In line with the opening of the cineplex, there will be a big giveaway with 850 pairs of free tickets up for grabs.

Features the most number of premium halls in a single venue in Singapore

Shaw Theatres Balestier has a total of 11 cinemas: six regular halls, four ‘Lumiere’ halls, and one ‘Dreamers’ hall.

The ‘Lumiere’ halls boast the luxurious Figueras seating and a state-of-the-art surround sound system.

Not only can the seats be reclined, but the armrest can also be folded up to form love seats.

Overall, it offers a much more luxurious and intimate environment to watch your favourite films.

The ‘Dreamers’ hall, on the other hand, provides an environment that is more suitable for children.

This includes a reduced volume, as well as soft lighting.

Furthermore, the front of the hall will feature a large play space for kids, similar to the ‘Dreamers’ hall at Shaw Theatres Jewel.

However, the ‘Dreamers’ hall will only be open to the public at a later date.

Shaw Theatres Balestier’s interior design pays tribute to heritage district

The original Shaw Theatres Balestier was extremely iconic in Singapore.

As such, the company decided to use the design of the cineplex to pay tribute to Balestier, a heritage district known for its industrial background, old shophouses, and diverse architectural buildings.

For instance, the interior of the cineplex is reminiscent of streets filled with trendy cafes and niche lifestyle shops, similar to what you would find on the streets of Balestier.

Mark Shaw, Director of the Shaw Organisation Group of Companies, highlighted, “Apart from what you will typically expect of a cineplex, we are bringing lifestyle into our overall cinema offering to our patrons.”
