Movie buffs, there’s a new kid on the block that you need to “get to know” pronto!

Golden Screen Cinemas Sdn Bhd (GSC)’s latest cinema, located at Quill City Mall, Jalan Sultan Ismail Kuala Lumpur, was officially launched today – with much fanfare. We say this because there was an interesting theme to it, one that any moviegoer can immediately relate to:

Yes, you’re looking at a “The Hobbit“-themed launch.

Built at the cost os RM21.5million, the 10-screen GSC multiplex has a seating capacity of 1,751, including 20 wheelchair space. Together with the existing GSC Pavilion KL (13 screens) and GSC Berjaya Times Square (10 screens), that’s a whopping total of 33 screens with a total seating of 5,661 in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. And that’s not all!

The new cinema also features a THX hall equipped with the new revolutionary Dolby Atmos “3D” audio sound system to deliver an immersive cinematic experience, as well as a “projection room-less” auditorium (in GSC Quill City Mall’s Hall 7) that features a retractable digital projector mounted to the auditorium ceiling.

Oh, in case you haven’t tried it, the Dolby Atmos “3D” audio sound system is a completely new platform for cinema sound which introduces powerful new listening experiences for movies. Believe us when we say that the system allows you to hear sounds anywhere in the theatre – even overhead.
