Golden Screen Cinemas, also known as GSC is pushing the cinema-going experience to the next level with the latest ultra-luxe boutique cinema concept, Aurum Theatre. Fresh after its first debut in The Mall, Mid Valley Southkey, GSC has launched their second outlet at The Gardens Mall, Kuala Lumpur.
Forget the regular standard seats, its all-new opulent halls are now equipped with fleece blankets and bespoke hospitality at your service, giving every movie-goer an experience of a lifetime. Aurum is named after the Latin word and chemical element for gold, making it a true cinematic luxury for all Malaysians to enjoy. From exquisite designer recliners, private screening to luxurious gastronomic adventure, Aurum is the business class of all movie theatres.
Gold class Comfort Cabins
There is the all-new Comfort Cabin that is an upgrade from the regular Gold Class seats. It is built with privacy panels allowing you to recline your seats at ease during the movies with additional amenities including a blanket, a personal lamp, a compartment to keep your belongings, a wireless USB charger and a side table for your snacks and drinks.
Escape Studios for those with an adventurous mind
Each Escape Studio comes with its own signature appeal. What makes it even better is no two Escape Studio auditoriums are the same.
The first one is designed exclusively for all minimalists with a Scandinavian-themed auditorium. Decked out with Getha latex pillows and blankets, the Hygge is made for guests to get snuggly and comfy whilst watching the movie.
On the other hand, guests could opt for the Diptych that exudes vibrant pop art with a big neon sign at the back. Perfect for all Andy Warhol fans, this Warholesque auditorium also comes with very attractive recliners and couches making it a perfect Instagram moment.
Last but not least, said to be the Wes Anderson-inspired hall — the Tenenbaum is aesthetically pleasing to the eye. Designed after the distinctively quirky style of Wes Anderson, this is Instagrammable auditorium might relive guests of their favourite movie moment from The Grand Budapest Hotel.
These auditoriums are furnished with LA-Z Boy rockers and IMG recliners to four-seater sofas for the entire family. Each seat costs RM120 that also comes with fleece blankets, plush pillows and an in-hall service call button.
The pièce de résistance, Getha Lux Suites
Exclusively designed by prominent Italian architect, Marco Fumagalli — the Getha Lux Suites is the crème de la crème of all auditoriums. It features luxury recliners with plush latex cushioning, nano-silver antibacterial covers, plush pillows and a silky fleece blanket. Each suite also comes with a personal lamp, wireless USB charger and a compartment to store your belongings just like the Comfort Cabin.
For the Getha Lux Suites, the tickets are priced at RM150 per seat.
Gastronomical feast at Jin Gastrobar
Tickets sold in the Aurum Theatre comes in a form of Aurum passes. Unlike regular tickets that entitle guests to their seats, the Aurum pass is the golden ticket to a complete luxurious cinematic experience.

Alternatively, guests could also opt to have their meals served directly to their seats during the movies.
