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.
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.
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.”
Prior to the official opening of the cineplex, Shaw Theatres Balestier will be giving away 850 pairs of movie tickets at an open house from 27 to 29 Mar.
On 27 and 28 Mar, 350 pairs of tickets will be available for the first 350 patrons on both days. These tickets are only valid for movie screenings from 11am to 8.30pm on the same day.
Meanwhile, 150 pairs of tickets will be up for grabs for the first 150 patrons on 29 Mar. These tickets are only valid for movie screenings from 11am to 3pm on the same day.
The queue will start at 10am at the box office on all three days.
