Cathay Cineplex is a “choice destination” offering quality films with state-of-art technology including digital projection and Singapore’s only THX-certified halls as well as service with a difference to continually ensure that movie-going is a preferred leisure activity. Already a leading multiplex operator in Singapore, the company’s vision is to make Cathay Cineplexes a leading multiplex operator in South East Asia.
Cathay Organisation’s history as a pioneer in movie entertainment began on 18 July 1935 when it was incorporated as Associated Theatres Ltd (later changed to Cathay Organisation) and opened its first cinema, The Pavilion, in Kuala Lumpur in 1936. In Singapore, Cathay Organisation started operating its first theater when it opened the Cathay Building in 1939. Between the 1950s and 1970s, Cathay Organisation expanded its cinema network and embarked on film production with studios in Hong Kong and Singapore. In November 1998, Cathay Cineplexes Pte Ltd was incorporated in its efforts to deliver a consistently high-quality cinematic experience to patrons in Singapore and Malaysia.
Today Cathay have nine cinemas and 90 screens across Singapore and Malaysia.
