If you, like us, make going to the cinemas as part of your to-do list whenever you travel to JB, you’d be delighted to know that your movie experience is going to get even better with ultra-luxe cinema concept, Aurum Theatre.
Now, this is not just another Gold Class experience. Instead, what you’re getting are premium services like opulent halls with uber comfy suites, contemporary continental dining, bespoke assistance and more.
Tickets are priced at RM150 (S$50) per person. While that may sound steep, what you’re getting is definitely worth every dollar. For instance, part of Aurum’s offerings include the Getha Lux Suites, specially designed by Italian architect Marco Fumagalli. These suites boast exactly the things that would make you fall asleep in the cinema (in a good way, though): nano-silver antibacterial covers, plush pillows, a silky fleece blanket, disposable slippers and reclining seats.
Those who are always running low on juice can charge their phones with the wireless and USB charger available. Wish to grab a bite halfway through the movie? Just hit the special in-call button to get personalised service from Aurum’s hosts.
