Getting tired of your 50 inch home entertainment unit? Golden Village has announce it will open its doors once again on Monday, 13 July, as cinemas have been given the green light to resume operations, albeit with a very limited selection of titles.

To ensure the health and safety of moviegoers and staff, Golden Village has put in place a comprehensive ‘safety first’ set of measures, reflecting the latest Ministry of Health’s guidelines with a focus on reduced physical interaction, social distancing and maximum hygiene.

These guidelines will be reinforced with the pre-existing protocols that Singapore’s leading cinema operator has put in place earlier this year. 

GV is also introducing a special promotion for cinephiles – the M Pass! The M Pass is part of an exclusive partnership with KLOOK that allow patrons to redeem four movie tickets which can be used to enjoy a selection of 20 movie titles.

Priced at $20 for Golden Village Movie Club and KLOOK members and $25 for general public, the M Pass is a card that you will not want to miss out on!

Pre-sale tickets for movie screenings and the exclusive M Pass will be available for purchase from 3 July and 4 July respectively via GV’s website and iGV app

Alongside an exciting slate of movies, Singapore’s leading cinema operator has introduced a comprehensive set of measures as part of a ‘safety first’ approach, reflecting the latest Ministry of Health guidelines.

With a focus on reduced physical interaction, social distancing and maximum hygiene, measures introduced will include:

  • Each cinema hall to have a capacity limit of 50 patrons per screening
  • Seats to be cordoned off to ensure social distancing of at least one-metre between patrons
  • Seating to be configured to enable smaller groups of two and three friends and family to sit together. (Larger groups of four and maximum five remain subject to seat availability).
  • Patrons to be guided by ushers to ensure safe distancing on exit from cinema halls
  • Automated Ticketing Machines (ATMs) to be reconfigured where necessary to ensure safe distancing between patrons while queueing
  • Disposable packaging to be used for all food and beverage purchases

The measures come in addition to the pre-existing protocols put in place earlier this year following the COVID-19 outbreak. These include:

  • Daily temperature screening of all staff
  • Face masks to be worn by all staff, members of the public and contractors
  • Crowd and queue management to ensure patrons abide by safe distancing
  • Floor markers to demarcate queue lines for patrons at cinema entrance, box office and ATMs
  • Thorough cleaning and disinfecting of general access areas throughout the day, especially at high touch-point areas; cleaning of cinema halls after each screening
  • Provision of public hand sanitisers at various touch-points throughout cinemas
  • Contact Tracing QR codes set up at usher and exit points for patrons, staff and contractors to scan upon checking in and out. Anyone with a temperature of 37.5°C or more will be refused access to the cinema hall, with tickets refunded

Screening on 13 July are two popular Asian titles - Thai romantic comedy Low Season, and Taiwanese horror film The Bridge Curse. Low Season, which stars Thai heartthrob Mario Maurer, tells the story of a scriptwriter seeking inspiration for a horror film, who falls in love with a girl who can see ghosts, while Taiwanese box office hit The Bridge Curse follows a story of a group of university students who film at a haunted bridge at Taichung’s Tunghai University only to discover the supposed evil might be real after all. On 15 July, cinephiles will be able to catch the premiere of zombie thriller Train to Busan: Peninsula on the same day the movie is released in South Korea. Moviegoers can look forward to the highly-anticipated follow-up to the 2016 film Train to Busan, which remains the highest grossing Korean film in Singapore to date. Early last month, it was announced that Train to Busan: Peninsula made the International Cannes Film Festival’s 2020 Official list.
