  • This is an absolutely fabolous museum chock full of movie paraphinelia from of old. A walkndown memory lane. Super fun especially for those who grew up in the 1970s amd 1980s. Expect to spend 45.....  more »
  • Popped in here for a quick visit at lunchtime today. The place was completely deserted and I was able to look around without any issues. Took a few photos but was then growled at on the way out...  more »

  • Lots of tenants have left the place on the upper levels. No longer the hip place that I remembered a few years back. Perhaps it is due to more cinemas being built in the neighbourhoods thus Cathay having less patrons? Still, a well maintained mall, with a few decent f&b outlets. If you are an art enthusiast then good news! Overjoyed have recently moved in. Perhaps to cater to the nearby art school.
  • The seats are so much better than the GV and Lido ones. This cinema deserves so much more. Landlord, please find better retail brands to bring in the crowd. There's no reason why it should be this empty given that so many tertiary schools are around this area.
