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

As a rule of thumb, expect to pay an additional $0.50 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 at Shaw Theatres and Filmgarde Cineplexes for $9.00.

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

However, this cinema would be out of the way for most of us, and paying an additional $2 for the convenience at your nearest cinema isn’t too bad either.
