Updated Nov 2014 – Version 4 available here
Barely 10 months ago, I updated version 2 of the guide to the cheapest movie tickets in Singapore, and now it’s time to make some updates as the cinemas have increased the prices of the movie tickets and a lot of the existing promotions have lapsed.
Many years ago, Cathay used to be my favourite cinema as they had an excellent promotion with UOB then and movie tickets were just $6.50, then the promotion ended, and GV started the HSBC-GV prepaid card that were the next best thing as movies cost $7.50 each. Now, this card has been replaced by 2 separate versions – for Mon-Thursday and the other for All Days (well almost, since Xmas, NY and CNY D1 and D2 are excluded).
After scouting through the list, it seems like there are some pretty good 1-for-1 deals now. The SAFRA promotion is good for weekends at Shaw since each movie ticket costs $5.50 only, and the Nets Flashpay 1-for-1 at Cathay is good for all day using the coupon on the app. M1 users can also choose to watch in Cathay on weekends since it is 1-for-1 but just a small note, its 2D movie ticket prices are slightly higher than Shaw’s.
The ultimate movie cheat sheet was created by Mr Soh Zi Haur, and it is a more comprehensive list that what I have compiled. If you have elderly folks and students and wish to compare the prices, then please refer to the tables below as I have excluded them from my own table to reduce the clutter (Filmgarde has no promotions with anyone so the student promotion was included in my table :))
