Golden Village to Reopen on Monday 13 July 2020


Golden Village to Reopen on Monday 13 July 2020 Singapore’s leading cinema operator introduces extensive range of ‘safety first’ measures alongside exciting slate of new and past movies, as Korean horror ‘Peninsula’ premieres.

Singapore, 3 July 2020 – In a welcome boost for Singapore’s movie-going public, Golden Village (GV) will be reopening its doors to patrons from Monday 13 July 2020, following a fifteen-week closure. The news follows today’s announcement by the Singapore Government giving cinemas the green light to resume operations.
Alongside an exciting slate of movies, Singapore’s leading cinema operator has introduced a comprehensive set of measures as part of a ‘safety first’ approach, reflecting the latest Ministry of Health guidelines.
With a focus on reduced physical interaction, social distancing and maximum hygiene, measures introduced will include:
  • Each cinema hall to have a capacity limit of 50 patrons per screening
  • Seats to be cordoned off to ensure social distancing of at least one-metre between patrons
  • Seating to be configured to enable smaller groups of two and three friends and family to sit together. (Larger groups of four and maximum five remain subject to seat availability).
  • Patrons to be guided by ushers to ensure safe distancing on exit from cinema halls
  • Automated Ticketing Machines (ATMs) to be reconfigured where necessary to ensure safe distancing between patrons while queueing
  • Disposable packaging to be used for all food and beverage purchases
The measures come in addition to the pre-existing protocols put in place earlier this year following the COVID-19 outbreak. These include:
  • Daily temperature screening of all staff
  • Face masks to be worn by all staff, members of the public and contractors
  • Crowd and queue management to ensure patrons abide by safe distancing
  • Floor markers to demarcate queue lines for patrons at cinema entrance, box office and ATMs
  • Thorough cleaning and disinfecting of general access areas throughout the day, especially at high touch-point areas; cleaning of cinema halls after each screening
  • Provision of public hand sanitisers at various touch-points throughout cinemas
  • Contact Tracing QR codes set up at usher and exit points for patrons, staff and contractors to scan upon checking in and out. Anyone with a temperature of 37.5°C or more will be refused access to the cinema hall, with tickets refunded
Ms. Clara Cheo, Chief Executive Officer, Golden Village Multiplex said: “While we’re excited to be able to reopen our doors to movie-goers, the safety and well-being of our customers and colleagues is our highest priority. We have introduced an extensive range of precautionary measures across our cinemas to ensure patrons can once again enjoy the very best movie experience, in the safest way possible.”
Film lovers can look forward to an exciting slate of new movies combined with blockbusters and favourites as GV looks to reopen with a bang. Three exciting movies will be making their debut in Singapore during the reopening week:
On 13 July, anime fans can look forward to the screening of popular anime superhero film My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising alongside an exclusive fans’ screening of Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna. As part of the exclusive fans’ screening, which takes place on 13 and 14 July, ticket-holders will receive collectables from the popular anime series. Public screenings for Digimon will start from 16 July.
Pre-sale tickets will be available for purchase from 3 July 2020 via GV website and iGV app (available on iPhone and Android). (Please refer to Annex A for more details)
Also screening on 13 July are two popular Asian titles - Thai romantic comedy Low Season, and Taiwanese horror film The Bridge Curse.
Low Season, which stars Thai heartthrob Mario Maurer, tells the story of a scriptwriter seeking inspiration for a horror film, who falls in love with a girl who can see ghosts, while Taiwanese box office hit The Bridge Curse follows a story of a group of university students who film at a haunted bridge at Taichung’s Tunghai University only to discover the supposed evil might be real after all.
On 15 July, cinephiles will be able to catch the premiere of zombie thriller Train to Busan: Peninsula on the same day the movie is released in South Korea. Moviegoers can look forward to the highly-anticipated follow-up to the 2016 film Train to Busan, which remains the highest grossing Korean film in Singapore to date. Early last month, it was announced that Train to Busan: Peninsula made the International Cannes Film Festival’s 2020 Official list. (Please refer to Annex B)
In addition to these must-see releases, GV will be introducing an exclusive M Pass as part of a partnership with KLOOK. With the purchase of every M Pass, patrons can redeem four movie tickets, which can be used to enjoy a selection of 20 exciting movie titles. Patrons will also receive an exclusive Minions movie card. Limited quantities of the M Pass are available for sale, priced at $20 for Golden Village Movie Club (GVMC) and KLOOK members, and $25 for the public.
This fantastic value-for-money card will be available for purchase from 4 July at www.gv.com.sg and via iGV app. (Terms and Conditions apply)

Woman who flouted Covid-19 mask rule, claimed to be 'sovereign' arrested!


Looking at this video footage.. I've some views about it.
Perhaps the police can actually take up stricter interventions by straightaway pinning her down and handcuffed her without wasting much time.. the moment when she challenged the system by taking videos of the policemen. Such act of the lady should not be tolerated.

Just my point of view.. there's always sth to learn and improve on.

Singaporean Artistes Getting Rich?



I have seen pop-outs when I use the Internet.. and these are getting abit annoying!

Are these REAL!?

With the Use of The Straits Times name and logo .. Can The Straits Times sue them (as in the person/s behind these campaigns)?


Here's the actual link:


Basically.. if you were to scroll down further.. its about BitCoin.
I've friends who lost money in it though.

Nevertheless, the whole impression of this campaign or news doesn't seem very legitimate.
I feel probably the IMDA can look into this?


With all these advert pop-outs, it can be very distracting during our experience surfing the net.


Some things to think about!

And feel free to comment at the comment box if you know sth.
Thank you!

Singapore Motorshow 2020 | 9 - 12 Jan

 
The Singapore Motorshow 2020 concluded its largest show to date, held at the Suntec Convention and Exhibition Centre from 9 to 12 January.
 
Visitors were treated to a display of more than 100 vehicles from 36 automotive brands split across two floors, as well as exciting stunt-driving performances by crowd-favourite Russ Swift, sponsored by Subaru.
 
In addition to more than 20 vehicle launches and showcases, visitors to the Singapore Motorshow also had the opportunity to meet popular Mediacorp artistes over the course of the event. These included Yasminne Cheng and Jean Danker from CLASS 95; Denise Tan from GOLD 905; Zhong Kunhua and Nico Weibin from YES 933 and Kenneth Kong and Chua Lee Lian from LOVE 972. Over the weekend, there were also appearances by Romeo Tan, Paige Chua, Shaun Chen, Felicia Chin, Bonnie Loo and Ayden Sng.
 
“The Singapore Motorshow 2020 was our largest edition yet, with more brands in participation than ever before. I am happy that even after six years, this continues to be the main automotive event here. I would like to thank everyone who has contributed to its success, and we will continue working hard to raise the bar in the coming years,” said Mr Glenn Tan, President of the Motor Traders Association of Singapore (MTA).
 
Ms Irene Lim, Chief Customer Officer, Mediacorp said, “We are thrilled to partner MTA once again to stage an even bigger and better Singapore Motorshow. The 2020 edition demonstrated a strong showing among car enthusiasts, their families and friends with the largest number of brands showcasing their latest and most technologically advanced cars. Harnessing Mediacorp’s multiple platforms and star power, we successfully appealed to audiences, who not only manage to acquaint themselves with the latest car models, but also found the opportunity to interact with their favouriteMediacorp celebrities and deejays at the fun-filled weekend carnival.”

More than 52,000 visitors attended the Singapore Motorshow 2020, and some walked away with fantastic prizes. Mr. Muhammed Sabri Mahmod became the proud owner of a brand-new Subaru XV 2.0i-S EyeSight through the lucky draw conducted by the MTA in collaboration with Subaru. Other lucky visitors took home prizes and gifts from sponsors such as Shell, HL Bank and AIG Singapore.
 
 

 
This Mercedes-AMG C 63 S Coupe looks really cool!
One of the favourite models I like from the Benz..
 
 


 
Do you miss the epic Toyota Supra with the unforgettable 4 rounded tail-lamps with fat bumpers?
 
Here it is!
 
 
 
Havin' able to sit behind the wheels of it.. and havin' a feel of it! Its awesome!
 
 
 
Would you prefer the yallow or this iron grey?
 
 
 
The tail-lamps are really nice too!
Dual-exhaust.. awesome!
 
 
 
 
If I were to choose a 4WD Off-Road.. this would be the One!
But too bad.. this is a Concept model and Not for Sale!
 
 


Watch this video!
 
 
Like some Lego lights.. but nice! :)
 

 
 





 
Over here.. I actually took many pictures of the tail-lights of the Audi..
Because they are really very innovative on the lights rather than those you normally see on the road. 
 

 
These unique tail-lamps would really have a presence on the road..
and you would even turn your head to look at it again!
In short.. head-turner!
 



 
Not forgetting this Audi RS 5 Sportback .. which really blends well with this green!
Most of the cars doesn't suit well with green.. but not for this!
 

 
And here's one of my favourite brand!
 

 


And my favourite model would be this M8!
 


 


 Check out this video in summary .. featuring some of the stunt shots from Subaru!
 
Hope you enjoyed this post!

And thanks RICE Communications for the access pass to this sought-after Motorshow!
