After closing for renovations in 2019, Shaw Theatres Balestier is finally reopening on 30 March 2023 with a lavish new space. To celebrate its grand opening, the Shaw Theatres will be giving out 850 pairs of movie tickets for free, so if you’ve been waiting to catch a movie, now’s your chance to do it!
The newly refurbished theatre sports a luxe interior design that pays tribute to the rich heritage of the district it sits in. The corridors are decked in red bricks and metallic structures that mimic the vibes of taking a stroll along Balestier Road.
The cinema will also house 11 halls — the first cinema in Singapore to have the most number of premium halls in a single venue. There are six regular halls and five premium halls — of which, four will feature reclinable seats to provide more legroom and the latest sound system to make the movie-going experience even more comfortable and dynamic. Time to get cosy in the movies and if you do fall asleep, just make sure you don’t snore too loudly okay?
Couples can also cuddle together and watch their favourite romance movies as the armrests for twin seats can be folded up to make the movie date night more intimate.
The other premium hall is a family-friendly hall specially catered to families with young children and will screen family-friendly movies all year round — now everyone can have an enjoyable movie-watching experience without getting upset at one another (hopefully)! The hall will also have soft lighting and reduced volume specially catered for children’s safety.
Similar to the Shaw Theatres at Jewel, the family-friendly hall will also feature a large play area at the front for kids. More details on the hall will be released at a later date, but we’ll be sure to keep you updated!
Ahead of its official opening, Shaw Theatres Balestier is currently giving out 850 pairs of free movie tickets to moviegoers. Starting today (27 March) and tomorrow (28 March), 350 pairs of tickets will be up for grabs each day. The remaining 150 tickets will be up for grabs on 29 March. Do note that these tickets are only valid for movie screenings from 11am to 8.30pm on the same day.
To score some free tickets, you’ll have to join the queue at Shaw Theatres Balestier Box Office. The queue starts at 10am and you’ll be issued a coupon to exchange for a pair of free movie tickets at the box office. Each customer is limited to a maximum of two free tickets, while stocks last — so make sure to be a bit more kiasu and join the queue early to avoid disappointment.
Some of the movie titles you can look forward to enjoying include Marvel Studios’ Thor: Love and Thunder, Elvis, Disney’s Encanto, Lyle Lyle Crocodile, and The King’s Man.
Additionally, there will also be other exciting promotions, deals, and freebies which you can look forward to!
