A Golden Village theatre at VivoCity, Singapore's largest multiplex, and one of Asia's largest, with the largest screen in Asia.

Golden Village is a movie theatre operator based in Singapore which is a 50:50 joint venture by Golden Harvest of Hong Kong and Village Roadshow of Australia. It operates eleven multiplexes and cineplexes in the country. It joined hands to open a cinema at Great World City, GV Grand. Started in 1992, it opened Asia's first multiplex, the Yishun 10 multiplex. The cinema has the extensive management, operational and marketing skills of Village, as well as broad depth of experience of Golden Harvest in both film distribution and production across Asia.

Golden Village Pictures is the film-distribution arm of Golden Village. The company distributes Village Roadshow Pictures titles such as the Matrix Trilogy, Charlie and The Chocolate Factory, Happy Feet, Ah Boys to Men, That Girl in Pinafore, Annie and The LEGO Movie, in Singapore, as well as other acquired titles regionally and worldwide.


Golden Village was established to develop and operate modern, multiplex cinemas. The cinema's first operation in the country was on 28 May 1992, with the successful opening of the Yishun 10 complex. Subsequently, it opened more cinemas in Bishan, Tiong Bahru, Boon Lay, Tampines, Marina Square and Plaza Singapura. In 1998, it joined hands to open a cinema at Great World City, GV Grand, with six screens including a Gold Class hall. During the early 2000s, one of the halls was converted into an IMAX theatre, but it closed down in 2004 due to low patronage. Golden Village used to operate at East Point Mall during the early 2000s, but was closed due to low patronage too. In late 2006, it opened GV VivoCity, the largest multiplex in Singapore with 15 screens, including 3 Gold Class screens and GV Max, one of the largest cinema auditoriums. Its newest multiplex is located at Suntec City with 11 screens including 3 Gold Class screens, and is also the flagship cinema of the chain taking over the space previously occupied by WE Cinemas.

The chain offers a wide variety of movies at convenient screening times throughout the day. Supported by a central computerised system, GV tickets can be bought via internet and mobile app. The patrons may choose their seats if booking via the Internet and mobile app.
