Film buffs would agree that the cinema is the best thing that has ever happened to humanity! The cinema is known as one of the most complete art forms there is, where different art forms like music, painting, story, etc come together to make one masterpiece.
As all good things must come to an end, Golden Screen Cinemas Sdn Bhd (GSC), Malaysia’s largest cinema chain, has decided to close one of its outlets located at a popular mall in Kuala Lumpur’s golden triangle that has been operating for over 12 years.
The homegrown cinema chain announced via Twitter early this month that GSC Pavilion KL will be pulling down the shutters on 17 February 2020 as its 12-year lease with Pavilion Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) comes to an end. The outlet is known for its exclusive halls such as the THX, Gold Class and D-Box, which are not available at all outlets.
As a gesture of appreciation to all film lovers, GSC Pavilion gave out one complimentary small popcorn set for every ticket purchased until 16 February 2020.
“We would like to take this opportunity to convey our sincerest thanks and gratitude to all movie-goers who have supported GSC Pavilion KL since its opening,” GSC said in the Twitter post.
To celebrate 12 years of good memories, we thought ‘why not go out with a bang’, right? So, we invited some friends from Lapar Esports to join us for a movie! We got our complimentary popcorns and drinks ready then head in the theatre one last time for an Oscar-rerun of the movie Parasite! Truth be told, we enjoyed ourselves, it was a bittersweet farewell for one of our favourite cinemas.
If you frequent Pavilion KL for movies, don’t worry, a brand new cinema – Dadi Cinema will replace our beloved GSC Pavilion KL, the popular shopping mall confirmed that the new cinema is scheduled to open in late 2020 on their official Facebook page.
Thank you GSC Pavilion, you will be missed!
