Excited: Long queues at the newly opened TGV Cinema in Aeon Kulaijaya.

JOHOR BARU: TGV Cinemas concluded 2014 with a huge expansion plan with the opening of five new cinemas in five states.

The latest to open was the TGV at AEON Kulaijaya in Johor on Dec 24.

Its chief executive officer Gerald V Dibbayawan said that it was indeed an exciting time for TGV cinemas as this was the first time the company was simultaneously spreading its wings to five states.

The other new TGV outlets are in AEON Bukit Mertajam in Penang, AEON Sri Manjung in Perak, Permaisuri Imperial City Mall in Miri and Jaya Shopping Centre in Selangor.

Dibbayawan said that the TGV in Kulaijaya boasts of five cinema halls with 1,203 seats.

“All the halls are fitted with the state of the art Dolby Digital sound system and digital cinema projector,” he said, adding that the cinema was not just able to show 3D shows but also high-frame-rate 3D (HFR3D) movies.

Dibbayawan added that the opening of the new cinemas was significant to the company’s growth and development as it marks the cinema chain’s on-going passion to share and enhance the cinema going experience for movie lovers nationwide.

“With the opening of the new cinemas, TGV cinemas will not have 27 multiplex cinemas with 219 screens with more than 37,500 seats,” he said, adding that TGV was also organising a 30 das of goodies this month at all their new locations.

He added that customers could claim a free goodie from TGV such as movie passes, popcorn and drink vouchers as well as movie premiums.

Meanwhile TGV is also helping to come together to offer assistance to flood victims in the East Coast by collecting items for victims including canned food, supplies for babies, mineral water and sanitary pads.

Patrons who wish to donate could drop off their items at the nearest TGV Cinemas in the Peninsular anytime between 10am and 10pm.
