Movie-lovers are now set to enjoy blockbusters in a big way with GSC BIG, Golden Screen Cinemas’ brand-new proprietary premium large format (PLF) screen, which was launched today by the leading cinema exhibitor in partnership with Hong Leong Bank (HLB).
GSC BIG was launched at GSC Starling Mall, Petaling Jaya in conjunction with the release of the highly-anticipated superhero movie, Black Adam, with Golden Screen Cinemas’ Chief Executive Officer, Ms. Koh Mei Lee, and HLB’s Managing Director of Personal Financial Services Mr. Andrew Jong officiating the event.
Promising an all-round big screen, big sound, and big experience for cinema-goers, BIG has been specially designed to enhance the excitement of the most intense action-packed films.
The screen brings to life high-octane, adrenaline-rushing scenes on a larger-than-life cinema screen with dimensions of over 20-metres in width and 10.8-metres in height, powered by a 4K laser projector for astounding visual clarity, sharpness, as well as colour accuracy and dispersion across the entire screen.
Complementing its visual prowess is a 32-channel multi-speaker Dolby Atmos surround sound setup that delivers pristine, crystal-clear audio. This revolutionary spatial audio technology entrances and fully-immerses audiences in the film with environmental sound from all directions.
Combined with additional subwoofers native to BIG halls, the bass of sounds and music are deeper, more pronounced and have greater impact than regular cinema halls.
The big experience at BIG comes from its plush, spacious seating; 396 people can watch a movie comfortably in BIG at GSC The Starling Mall with ample leg room across aisles.
Selected BIG halls also feature recliners and D-BOX motion seats for those seeking a differentiated experience, where they can also feel the movement associated with each movie scene.
The launch of GSC BIG signifies an important milestone in the longstanding, successful partnership between GSC and HLB, which is in its fourteenth year since the introduction of the HLB GSC Credit Card, Malaysia’s first-ever co-branded credit card with a cinema chain.
Through this successful partnership, customers have enjoyed special discounts and perks on movie tickets and food and drink at GSC cinemas over the years.
With the introduction of GSC BIG, HLB is bringing even more wonderful and rewarding cinematic experiences not only to its customers but also to movie lovers across Malaysia.
While GSC BIG is presently available in GSC The Starling Mall and GSC Tropicana Gardens Mall, this new PLF experience will be steadily rolled out to more GSC theatres across the region in the coming months.
GSC BIG will replace all existing GSC MAXX locations, as the latter is phased out from use and replaced by the new
cinema offering, which promises an even more impactful and immersive movie viewing experience. The full list of GSC BIG locations are as follows:
- GSC The Starling Mall, Petaling Jaya
- GSC IOI City Mall, Putrajaya
- GSC Tropicana Gardens Mall, Kota Damansara, Selangor
- GSC MyTOWN Shopping Centre, Cheras, Kuala Lumpur
