GV Vivo Gold Class

A cluster of 3 Gold Class Cinemas - the ultimate in luxury movie viewing with a private lounge and plush electronic recliner seats comparable to

GV VivoCity sets a new benchmark for multiplexes in Singapore by introducing a sophisticated club ambience, with a 5-star food and beverage menu available (including a top wine list) and a private dining room.

The Gold Class cinema seats are all equipped with call buttons for faster and more discreet service. A new level of concierge-style service, hitherto unseen in Singapore cinemas, will be enjoyed by patrons from the moment they arrive all the way through their patronage experience.

It was our first time to try the Gold Class. And it felt worth it because XMen First Class is a long movie about 2 hours 15 minutes. Okay at $28 per pax the cinema is almost 4x the normal rate which is about $6.50 for weekdays. But I really enjoyed the experience.

I like it because:
  • You get to wait at the lounge (awesome that you don't need to stand around being pushed by the crowd)
  • You get to eat free peanuts (haha I know.. what a cheapstake!)
  • The menu selection is GOOD! The price is not that bad too.
  • You get to rub elbows with celebs. I saw Gurmit with his family, that I was tempted to ask if I can have a picture taken (but I was too shy!)
  • I love that you don't need to run if you need to go to the toilet in the middle of the movie because its quite near the cinema

  • I love the chair! Nobody kicks your chair. You are far enough from you seatmates that you don't hear their nonsense laughing or talking! You feel like home! Recline, sleep if you want.
  • I love that they provide blankets because it really gets cold inside the cinema and carrying around a jacket is not that practical.
  • I love that they bring the food for you inside the cinema. No hassle!

  • And? I loved the food. It's amazingly and unexpectedly good.




And what I didn't like?

Well, it's expensive. Then, I think 80% of the staff at that time were Pinoys, and because they know you are Pinoy too, it's kinda weird the way they treat you. At first I couldn't decide what to order, but the girl serving very casually said, "Hindi ka oorder?!" Like she couldn't believe it. Like it's not normal. That I'm not normal. Geez. Just because you're working in a supposed to be high class center doesn't mean you're as high as them and I'm not. When in fact, I'm the customer. The way she threw the cup of peanuts was not good either. She wasn't as rough on the other tables where there were Western folks. Hmm.. but anyway... I'm not going to this place often thus I will not allow anyone to dampen my mood. :)
