Your All-In-One Cost Guide To Movie Ticket Prices And Deals In Singapore 2020

Your-All-In-One-Cost-Guide-To-Movie-Ticket-Prices-And-Deals-In-Singapore

Once upon a time, we, or at least our parents, used to rent movies from brick and mortar stores. Then came an army of streaming sites where we were given the liberty to watch our favourite shows on demand from the comfort of our homes.

Goodbye Blockbuster.

That said, the entire experience of going to a cinema and watching a movie from a big screen, for better effects and an amplified surround sound is largely unparalleled.

As the savvy movie goers that we all are, or at least aspire to be, the two questions that we all have in the back of our minds is “Where can I find the cheapest movie tickets?” or “Are there any discounts on certain cards?”.

Lucky for you, we’ve done the honours by providing you with the ultimate guide to the movie ticket prices across the different cineplexes, which cineplex offers the cheapest movie tickets and additional perks such as discounts and deals that come with it!

Do note that the ticket prices listed below are for 2D movies only and do not include 3D movies, iMAX movies or anything else.

Movie Ticket Prices In Singapore 2020: Student Comparison

Below is an overview of the ticket prices for students across the 7 cinemas in Singapore:

Cinema Ticket Price When
GV $7  Mon – Fri, Before 6PM 
Cathay $6 (Tue) / $7 (Mon, Wed – Fri) Tue all day / Mon, Wed – Fri, Before 6PM
Shaw $6.50  Mon – Fri, Before 6PM

Filmgarde $7 Mon – Fri, Before 6PM
 Eaglewings Cinematics  $6.50 Mon – Fri, Before 5PM

The best out of the lot is obviously Cathay’s $6 tuesday deal.  

If not, Shaw and Eaglewings Cinematics has pretty good prices for students at $6.50 as well. Unfortunately, Eaglewings has only one location at KAP (King Albert Park) Mall, which might prove quite a hassle to some as well.

Not surprising that Shaw offers the cheapest movie tickets at $4 for senior citizens. 

 

GV Ongoing Movie Ticket Prices & Promotions 2020

GV movie tickets cost $9 on weekdays with an additional $0.50 for new releases and $13.50 on weekends. With 13 outlets across the island, GV is the largest cinema operator in Singapore.

The biggest drawback is that GV also pales in comparison to the other cinema operators in terms of the promotions that they offer.

Cards/Partners Promotions Cheapest Ticket Price
GV Movie Club $2 off online tickets on Mon / $7 tickets on Tue $7 (Tuesdays)
HSBC $1 off $7 (Weekdays)
HSBC Movie Card $7 weekday tickets/ $9.50 all day tickets $7 (Weekdays)
DBS/POSB $1 off all days $8 (Weekdays) / $12.50 (Weekends)

That said, the GV Movie Club proves to have the best memberships amongst the other cineplexes. Anyone can sign up with GV Movie Club for free and enjoy $2 off tickets when you book online on Mondays and $7 movie tickets on Tuesdays.

The HSBC Movie Card is also worthy of mention. This prepaid movie package gives you a discount for 10 movie tickets. You’ll have two options to choose from. Red ($70 for 10 tickets, weekdays only), or Silver ($95 for 10 tickets, can be used any day).

 

Cathay Ongoing Movie Ticket Prices & Promotions 2020

Compared to the past, Cathay now charges an extra $0.50 for new releases. This means that weekday movie tickets are now priced at $9 / $9.50 (new releases). Weekend movie tickets are now $13 / $13.50 (new releases).

As the second largest cineplex after GV, Cathay’s movie ticket promotions don’t seem too enticing.

Cards/Partners Promotions Cheapest Ticket Price
Singtel 1-for-1 on Sat $6.50 (Sat)
Passion Card $11.50 weekday movie package, $14.50 weekend movie package No discount

Looking at the above, the 1-for-1 Singtel deal will stand out as the better one. $6.50 for a movie ticket on a Satuday is definitely a steal! 

 

Shaw Ongoing Movie Ticket Prices & Promotions 2020

In the case of Shaw, they’re all about providing movie goers with some of the best deals and the cheapest ticket prices. Tickets at Shaw cost $8.50 ($9.50 for new releases) on Mondays to Thursdays, and $13 on weekends.

You’ll be happy to note that Shaw has the most number of deals compared to the rest of the cineplexes.

Cards/Partners Promotions Cheapest Ticket Price
UnionPay 1-for-1 tickets all week $4.25 (All Days)
SAFRA Movie Max $7/$8 weekday tickets. $9.50 weekend $7 (Weekdays)
SAFRA $7.50 / $9 (Mon – Thur) & $11 Fri – Sundays, Eve of PH & PH $7.50 (Mon – Thur)
SAFRA  1-for-1 weekend tickets $6.75 (Weekends)
SAFRA NSF $7 / $8 (New releases and sneaks) Tuesday movie tickets

 

$7 (Tue) 
SAFRA $7.50/$9 weekday movies / $10.50 weekend movies $7.50 (Weekdays)
OCBC $1 off tickets $7.50 (Weekdays)

With twice the number of perks compared to GV and Shaw, Shaw stands out as the cheaper cinema alternative. 

The 1-for-1 movie ticket promotions will give you the most bang for the buck. However, like all good deals, there’s a catch. It’s only limited to the first 1000 redemptions of the month.

If you don’t have a SAFRA card, you can always ask a friend who has one along!

 

WE Cinema Ongoing Movie Ticket Prices & Promotions 2020

For the uninitiated, WE Cinema used to be known as Eng Wah till it rebranded itself in 2011. Sadly, there is only one WE Cinema across the island and it’s located at Clementi. A moment of silence for those of us who are not Westies.

When it comes to ticket prices, WE Cinema is largely on par with Shaw, if not better. It’s a flat $8.50 for weekday tickets irrespective of how new the film is and $12.50 for weekend tickets. Guess only the West siders get to rejoice, unless you’re willing to take a journey to the west.

Cards/Partners Promotions Cheapest Ticket Price
American Express $1 off tickets (min. purchase of 2 tickets) all week $7.50 (Weekdays)
HSBC $1 off tickets (min. purchase of 2 tickets) all week $7.50 (Weekdays)
Maybank $1 off tickets (min. purchase of 2 tickets) all week  $7.50 (Weekdays)
PAssion Card $1 off tickets (min. purchase of 2 tickets) all week  $7.50 (Weekdays)
Standard Chartered $1 off tickets (min. purchase of 2 tickets) all week  $7.50 (Weekdays)
Citibank $1 off tickets (min. purchase of 2 tickets) all week  $7.50 (Weekdays)
UOB $1 off tickets (min. purchase of 2 tickets) all week  $7.50 (Weekdays)


With the above $1 discounts, you’ll be able to get your tickets at $7.50 on weekdays and $11.50 on weekends. 

 

Filmgarde Ongoing Movie Ticket Prices & Promotions 2020

With 3 outlets across the island (Bugis+, Leisure Park Kallang and Century Square), movie ticket prices for Filmgarde cost $8.50 from Mondays to Wednesdays, $9 on Thursdays and $9.50 for new releases. Weekend movie tickets are a flat $13.

Sadly, Filmgarde doesn’t have any tie ups with cards or movie promotions going on. The only deal they’re currently offering is the 2’s Value Deal (inclusive of 2 movie tickets, 1 regular popcorn, a pack of chips, 1 regular drink and 1 bottled water) for $28 on weekdays and $37 on weekends. 

Not too attractive, compared to the rest of its competitors.

However, if there’s a saving grace for Filmgarde, it’s that they screen certain movies ahead of their premiere in other cinemas. They also have more screen timing options for older movies (more than a month old).

 

The Projector Ongoing Movie Ticket Prices & Promotions 2020

For those who love non mainstream films (foreign, indie, arthouse, etc.), The Projector is probably where you’ll find yourself going to. Unsurprisingly, ticket prices are the most expensive here as compared to the other cineplexes. Their prices are a flat $13.50 throughout the week.

Just like Filmgarde, The Projector doesn’t have any tie up with cards or movie promotions going on. However, they do have their own membership programmes:

New kid on the block Eaglewings Cinematics’ tickets are $9.50 on weekdays and $12.50 on weekends. Unfortunately, they do not offer any incentives and bundle deals or promotions for movie goers #sad.

However, if it’s any concession, Eaglewings Cinematics boasts an artisitic interior and offers cinema goers with a different movie experience.

As we’ve rounded up all the various deals and promotions across all the cinemas in Singapore, all you have to do now is to sit back, stuff yourself with popcorn and enjoy the movie!
