Aurum Theatre recently made its Malaysian debut in The Mall, Mid Valley Southkey. But instead of travelling all the way to Johor Bahru, locals in the Klang Valley now have easy access to it.
Last week, Golden Screen Cinemas (GSC) held the media preview for the brand-new, ultra-luxe boutique cinema. For the initiated, Aurum takes after the Latin word and chemical element that represents gold. So what makes it a true cinematic luxury? It features opulent halls, contemporary continental, dining from Jin Gastrobar, plus bespoke hospitality at your service.
