Sometimes, you just want to do something differently. And that was exactly how my experience with Cathay Cinema’s Platinum Suite started- I, a self-confessed movie junkie, wanted to watch a movie in a different way.
It wasn’t like I was feeling rich; I just wanted a new movie experience.
And boy did I get it.
My experience started when I “checked-in” at the Platinum counter. The staff verified my ticket and ushered me to the waiting lounge with a smile. Inside, another staff took over and escorted me to my seat.
This place was posh and minimalist, with clean and sleek designs. The lounge offers a variety of food, and of course at a premier price. They have both local and Asian fares, and some really fancy desserts. I had Churros and they were heavenly.
Oh, just a point to note here- you cannot buy the snacks and food they sell to other non platinum patrons and bring it in with you. You can only buy the food at the platinum lounge. I was quite disappointed because I really wanted to buy their slushie which was only available outside. But, the caramel popcorn they sold at this place pretty much made up for it.
As I made my way into the theatre, I realised that each row is made of only 6 large sofa like chairs, in pairs. So if you are planning to come here with friends, not really the best of ideas. Now back to the chairs. 2 large chairs are placed side by side with a table in-between. It’s very similar to a First Class plane sitting, just bigger and darker. The chair is really very comfortable. And there are a few buttons on the side that you can play with to recline and extend your chair, its really quite fun. Before the movie started, I was given a complementary blanket that was so soft and silky to get comfortable in.
The food and drinks that I ordered arrived shortly, and was placed on the table next to me. This table has a small lamp that can be kept on throughout the movie if you want. There is also a call button for you to press, should you want to order more food or need any assistance.
The movie began, and I have never felt so ready and at ease to truly enjoy a movie before.
