Cheapest 2D Movie Ticket Prices 2020

A regular 2D digital movie might be basic.

But it’s a go-to for many of us.

Plus it’s the most economical choice for movie-goers trying to stick to a budget.

Cheapest 2D Movie Ticket Price on Weekdays

CinemaCinema TypeMon to ThuMon to Thu

Cathay CineplexesStandard$9.00$9.50
Dolby Atmos®$14.00$14.50

Shaw TheatresStandard$9.00$9.50
The ProjectorStandard$13.50
WE Cinemas by Eng WahStandard$8.50$9.50
Dolby Atmos®$10.50$11.50

As a rule of thumb, expect to pay an additional $1 if the movie is a:

  • First-week title
  • First or second-week screening of mega-blockbusters
  • Sneak peek

The cheapest movie ticket for 2D films on a weekday would be WE Cinemas by Eng Wah, at $8.50.

However, that cinema is all the way in Clementi.

So if you’re nowhere near that area, you’re probably better off heading to somewhere more accessible like:

  • Cathay
  • Filmgarde
  • GV
  • Shaw

where the prices at any of these places aren’t too far off either ($9.00).

The cheapest movie ticket for 2D films on a weekend (Friday to Sunday as well as the eve or on public holidays) would be EagleWings Cinematics or WE Cinemas, at $12.50.

But again, these two cinemas are a little more out of the way.

If that’s the case, just head to the nearest Cathay and enjoy $13.00 movie tickets on the weekends!
