Auditorium seating has undergone a radical re-think from conventional cinema row-seating.
“GV has always been committed to creating the very best movie experience for its customers. With the new GV Paya Lebar, we have challenged ourselves to take that promise to a new level, in an effort to reinvigorate and redefine the very best cinematic experience,” said Clara Cheo, CEO, Golden Village Multiplex.
Fusing contemporary design with essential modern-day comfort, GV Paya Lebar’s latest seating concept in its DUO DELUXE hall (with 58 seats), gives movie goers the option of enhanced privacy and comfort.
With its opulent twin leatherette seats, specially designed with lumbar cushion for superior support, the exclusive 58-seat cinema is further testament to GV’s uncompromising approach to creating the ultimate cinema experience.
And while the in-cinema enhancements might be the main talking point, the multiplex’ aesthetics is far from an afterthought.
“The introduction of laser projection will be a game changer, not only for us, but for the industry at large. And with a specific focus on design and comfort, we want to create a more sophisticated experience for our customers. We’re confident that with so many firsts at Golden Village Paya Lebar, movie-goers will want to come out and have a great time at the movies with us”, Cheo added.
GV’s grab & Gold® café frames the entrance of the multiplex, lending the foyer both purpose and an aesthetic harmony, rarely seen in modernday cinema design.
With its warm colours, visual continuity, and contemporary furnishings and fittings, the design re-think brings an authentic but vibrant natural ambiance to the multiplex. grab & Gold® diners can enjoy a variety of local favourites and western dishes all of which can be enjoyed in the 35-seater café or in auditoriums during film screenings.
The new menu, which is exclusively available at GV Paya Lebar, offers savoury bites ranging from Banana Fritters, Cheese Poppers, Beef Chilli Cheese Fries, Otah Samosa, to hearty meals such as Coney Dog Roll, Basil Cheese Pizza, Thai Chicken Basil Rice.
