We went to watch Avatar on yesterday night, cause Wednesday is movie day or something like that, where ticket price is cheaper (RM6) than usual (RM9) – price varies depends on cinemas.
The queue at ticket counter
Being a small town (not yet a city), Sibu has two cinemas only if I not mistaken; Star Cineplex at its own building and King’s Trioplex at Premier Hotel & shopping complex.
The cinema here still uses manual ticketing system. Movie’s show-time is sticked on the movie poster instead of showing it on a TV screen. Seat number is written at the back of the ticket (N14 at the above picture) and show-time is written manually too (8.30 at the above picture). Quite old-school if compare to cinemas in Medan.
The cinema’s snack and drink counter.
The sound system and the screen is not bad. But, the toilet inside the theater is quite dirty and they definitely need to change the broken sinks with copper sinks. Besides, the seat is quite small and not so comfortable while leg’s area isn’t spacious enough. Those aren’t big deal as I still can tolerate it.
What can’t be tolerated is the brutal way of how the audiences pushing each other just to get into the theater. They are like hungry people who are fighting for free foods inside. The scene was so scary. Seriously, the way the people here queue is worse than Medanese way!
Despite that, we still have a good time. It’s our first time watching movie together in cinema here, so obviously we are keeping the tickets for memory sake.
