The well-being of our patrons and staff is our priority. Filmgarde Cineplexes is closely monitoring the evolving situation to safeguard all our patrons, staff and visitors to our cinemas against the 2019 novel coronavirus.
Safe Practice For Moviegoers
- Scanning or SafeEntry to check-in and check-out;

Social Distancing Features
We have lifted our no-single-seat-gap policy and it is now mandatory to allow 1 meter (approximately 2 seats) of space between yourself and other cinema audiences with immediate effect for your well-being and ease of mind.
Selected seats are left and marked vacant for safe-distancing measures. For contact tracing purposes, please DO NOT change seats or tamper with seat barriers.
We also included floor markers in queuing areas to ensure patrons maintain a safe distance.
