A popular local pastime, Singaporeans are known for their love of movies. There are many places to chill out and watch a good film in Singapore, with many paces offering the very highest standards of comfort and high-technology. A fairly cheap activity, going to the cinema can be a perfect activity for families that want to entertain the kids, couples who fancy a little chilled out time together, and travellers who are feeling a bit tired and just want a relaxing low-key activity.
The air-conditioned interiors can make for a great day time retreat from the hot temperatures and blazing sunshine and late night showings are great for night owls.
