Say what you want about the low costs and convenience of streaming sites, I’ve always believed that some films are made for the big screen, where you get to immerse yourself in a whole new world, complete with the glory of surround-sound goodness. 

No distractions, no horns blaring in the background, no ringing doorbells. Just you and the 90-minute visual and aural treat you just invested in. 

Experiencing a film at the cinema makes all the difference, elevating the entire work of art for maximum enjoyment. It’s the kind of escapism that’s worth a few extra bucks. But in case you’re still not willing to shell out more than S$10 for a ticket, we’ve put together a price guide to help you suss out the best deals, some as cheap as S$4.25 for a regular, adult pass, in Singapore. 

Here’s a look at the best prices you’ll snag.

Golden Village

While Golden Village isn’t known to be the most affordable theatre, the trick is to look out for promotions. For instance, it once offered S$7 tickets for screenings after 9pm on Thursdays.

You could also rally your friends for a flick at the select outlets to enjoy reduced prices—S$6.50 each for a group of five, S$7 each for a group of four, and S$7.50 each for a group of three. 

GV also ran a Movie Huat Huat EXTRA Deal where you could purchase a second standard movie ticket at just S$8.80 if you purchased a total of two tickets to the movies. This worked out to S$11.15 per ticket, so you got a cool S$2 discount off usual weekend and public holiday ticket prices (S$13.50).
