So the latest romance film is coming and you have a special hot date in mind, with Christmas coming and all. Normal cinema seats won’t do. You want the snuggliest, cosiest, and cushiest twin seats where you can cuddle up with your significant other, hip to hip. Where do you find the best love seats in Singapore?

To save you some hassle, we at The Popping Post have done the research and put together all that you need to know about couple seats across all of Singapore’s cinemas.

Here are six places where you can find a couple seat which you will love.

Cathay Cineleisure Orchard

Some Cathay cinema halls do have twin seats at the last two rows, but not all do. While Hall 3 of Cathay Cineleisure Orchard has been exclusively fitted with 48 pairs of love seats, you can’t see the movies and showtimes for just Hall 3 alone from their website. I suppose you could go to the box office and ask in person, but otherwise, I’m not quite sure how one actually secures a seat specifically in Hall 3, for the movie you want to watch. Of course, when you make a ticket booking on the website, the locations of couple seats are clearly indicated in the assigned theatre.

Woe to you if the cinema has only single seats, or if the couple seats have all been taken.

Price: From $9 per ticket, click here for more info.

Cathay Cineplexes’ Ultima @ Jem and West Mall

Three years ago when Cathay opened two cineplexes in the west, one in Jem and one in West Mall, they introduced these cushy couple Ultima seats in both locations. Ultima seats boast a wide seat width, and are located right at the rear of the cinema halls, behind the regular couple seats.

Price: Ultima 2D ($28 per pair) and Ultima 3D ($32 per pair), plus another $2 for each pair of 3D glasses if applicable.

Golden Village Cinemas

You’ll be happy to know that all regular Golden Village (GV) Cinemas (that is, all GV cinemas with the exception of GV @ Capitol), are fitted with seats whose armrests can be lifted. This means that you don’t have to worry about not being able to get your hands on a twin seat, because they’re not in limited edition at GV. Not just you and your better half can cosy up – your entire family can huddle together if you like. Nice, eh?

Price: From $8.50 for public; GV Movie Club members (membership is free) get privileges like $2 off on Monday, $6.50 per ticket on Tuesdays, and so on.

Golden Village Gemini

But what if you want to watch a movie in style and be able to hug your boyfriend or girlfriend? Like, you know, GV Gold Class but couple seats? Those who have been to a GV Gold Class cinema might lament how wide apart the seats are from each other – one can at most lock fingers, and not lips.

Ah, if this is your conundrum, then you’d be glad to know that GV Gemini will be perfect for you. It’s a concept whereby the entire cinema is laid out with nothing but wide, cushy twin couches (just a caveat: they’re non-reclining); and you can just click here to find out consolidated movies and showtimes at the GV Gemini theatres, exclusively available at GV City Square and GV Grand, Great World City.

In this layout, you won’t have to feel so self-conscious about snuggling up with your beau, or worse – reaching out for the wrong person. It is, hands down, the ultimate romantic movie experience you can get at a public cinema in Singapore.

While you can’t order food at GV Gemini, you can always wine and dine at the Gold Class Lounge at GV Grand, Great World City, to kickstart your romantic date. (See the menu here.)

To help you get nice and cosy, and to maximise your privacy, GV Gemini cinemagoers will get a pixelated blanket with three holes – the middle hole being one for the couple to share.

Price: $24 per pair before 6 pm from Mondays to Thursdays; $28 per pair after 6 pm from Mondays to Thursdays; $36 per pair from Fridays to Sundays, eve of public holidays, public holidays and sneak previews.

On December 21 (that’s next Wednesday), GV Gemini is holding a special Passengers Date Night for GV Movie Club members (we’ve already told you that signing up is free, right?), where you’ll get an attractive goodie bag for every pair of Gemini tickets purchased!
