Quality

A good quality Cinema at a cheap price. the quality of video and sound was quite nice. While the cinema pictures and sound system is good. This is a multiplex operator with cinemas all over the country. Seats are reasonably comfortable, sound system good and movie enjoyable. A nice cool place to spend a few hours being entertained. Allocated seating at this cinema. Cheap compared with Australia. Snacks were also reasonable and varied. The movie did have subtitles and they sensored swear words which I thought was ridiculous. The 14 screen GSC Pavilion is the first GSC Cineplex in Kuala Lumpur to be equip with Gold Class theatre, D-BOX motion chairs, 4 THX Halls and 2 Dolby Atmos Halls. Considering that they offers perks and frills, GSC Pavilion sounds like a Cineplex for all movie lovers out there.

However, most of the seats at the back rows are worn out and some seats were torn, which it has show signs that the seats were rather worn out. Also, the management seriously need to check and ensuHad my experience catching Star Wars Ep 7: The Force Awakens in Dolby Atmost D-BOX. While the D-BOX works perfectly fine, the prints used for the movie doesn't sounds like it is played on Dolby Atmos audio track, though there are some Dolby Atmos trailers played before the start of the film, which shows that Dolby Atmos sound system works perfectly well. Instead, the movie sounds like it was played on Dolby Surround 7.1 audio track, which doesn't justify the additional price we have to pay for Dolby Atmos screenings.

With more GSC Cineplex's opening in Kuala Lumpur, the management must do something to ensure that GSC Pavilion remains attractive for patrons to visit.
