Movie-goers, rejoice! We’ve got great news for you.
One of Malaysia’s oldest cinema operators – Golden Screen Cinemas (GSC) – has revealed that it will be opening 5 new cinemas in various locations starting next year. 2 new cinemas will be set up in Cheras, 1 in Taman Melawati, 1 in Selayang, and the largest of them all will be opening in Johor Bahru.
1. EkoCheras Mall, Cheras
Described as “an exciting mixed development situated on 12 acres of freehold land on Jalan Cheras”, EkoCheras (which is closely linked to Leisure Mall MRT station) will be introducing an 8-screen cinema that will feature 1 Atmos hall with more than 1000 seats.
2. MyTOWN, Cheras
Thinking of shopping for home furniture and catching a movie on the same day? You can soon kill 2 birds with 1 stone when GSC opens in MyTOWN. Located at Jalan Cochrane, Taman Maluri, the shopping centre is built right next to Malaysia’s 2nd IKEA outlet. The new cinema will boast 13 screens, including 1 Maxx hall (Atmos) and 1 Premiere hall, together with a seating capacity of over 1,800.
3. Melawati Mall, KL
Slated to open in the 2nd quarter of 2017, those living within the neighbourhood of Taman Melawati will have access to the area’s first major shopping mall. The joint development by CapitaLand Malls Asia Limited and Sime Darby Property will be introducing 11 well-known brands to the public. Moreover, the 13-storey Melawati Mall will be featuring GSC’s 10-screen cinema, which includes 1 Atmos hall, with more than 1,400 seats.

5. Paradigm Mall, Johor Bahru
JB’s Paradigm Mall was originally expected to open later this year but has since encountered a delay. Instead, all you Johor Bahru folks will have to wait just a little while longer. The long-awaited 6-floor shopping mall will boast the largest cinema to date in Johor with 16 movie screens, including 1 Maxx hall (Atmos) and 2 Premiere halls, that can house more than 2,200 seats. It is also the 2nd largest cinema nationwide, behind Mid Valley’s 21-screen cinema.
