The shows at 2330h at the Cathay (not cineleisure). How's the jam like over the last night?

I'm planning to skip the main stretch of Orchard Road by using Clemenceau Avenue and then turn towards Plaza Singapura. Are there any alternative routes?

Cathay sells cinema chain for $230m

 

 

 

The founding family that has run the historic home-grown Cathay movie theatre chain for more than 80 years is selling its local cinema operations for $230 million.

 

Cathay Organisation's Cathay Cineplexes unit will become part of the expanding operations of entertainment company mm2 Asia, the backer of local films such as director Jack Neo's Ah Boys To Men.

Under the terms of the deal announced yesterday, Cathay cineplex staff will stay on after the sale, which is expected to close by Nov 24.

No wonder Cathay's movie selection very limited of late ...

Wow, I guess Meileen has lost the drive to grow the business.

 

Cathay was once the biggest cinema brand name in Asia under her uncle, before his sudden death, together with much of the senior members of the company. His plane was blew up by the communists in Taiwan.

 

I hope mm2 will be doing more to build on Cathay's heritage which I always felt Meileen could have done more. Old Cathay films are harder to find than Shaw movies - OK, heritage is not a profitable business so can't really blame her. The old Cathay Keris studio in Balestier is still there, but closed to public.

Be interesting to see what this new operator does.

 

Years back when The Cathay re-opened it was suppose to be the place for movie buffs, Picturehouse, shops selling movie posters and DVDs etc.

 

Today The Cathay inside very quiet, and I guess if not for SOTA the place will be ghost town.  [sweatdrop]
