If you've never been able to justify forking out as much as $42 for a luxury movie experience in Singapore, you're not alone.
I've never been able to convince myself that reclining seats, freshly-cooked meals and wait staff at your beck and call is worth paying so much for — especially when you can get all of this at a fraction of the price just across the Causeway.
Other than eating, shopping or getting a massage, watching a movie is a great way to pamper yourself and it's easy to splurge a little more when the SGD is doing well against the ringgit.
So the next time you're on holiday and have some time to kill, consider upgrading your regular movie experience at the following cinemas.

AURUM THEATRE AT MID VALLEY SOUTHKEY
If you're going to give yourself a treat, Aurum Theatre at The Mall, Mid Valley Southkey is where you can go all out for the ultimate luxury cinematic experience.
At RM120 and RM150 for the Getha Lux Suites, this may not be cheaper than Singapore but at least you'll get more bang for your buck.
#AurumTheatre now open. Visit us The Mall, Mid Valley Southkey, Johor! Get your tickets online now at www.gsc.com.my.
Here's why it's so expensive: Instead of a regular seat or even a reclining one, you're paying to watch a show on a chair-bed with 100 per cent natural latex foam cushioning, USB chargers, fluffy pillows and a velvety blanket.
Those who are hygiene-conscious can relax, as the blankets and covers are changed after every session.
The hall comes with Dolby Atmos, a surround sound system that ensures cinema-goers have a more immersive experience.
We are opening tomorrow!! Here's your exclusive look at our Getha Luxe Suites, exclusively available in #AurumTheatre!
Additionally, each ticket comes with an Aurum Pass which gives you access to a wide range of curated meal platters and a selection of wine and cocktails that can be eaten at an in-house gastrobar or delivered directly to your seat.
You might want to bring a friend along for this experience though — some of the seats are without armrests so it might be a little awkward being in such close proximity to a stranger.
Where: The Mall, Mid Valley Southkey, No. 1, Persiaran Southkey 1, Kota Southkey, 80150 Johor Bahru, Johor.
