Gold Class Experience

Written By: Tuen - Nov• 03•09

On Sunday night, Mary and I finally made use of the Village cinema gift voucher that our kids had given Mary for Mother’s day (or was it for her birthday, I forget).  We decided to try out the Gold Class cinema, which we had heard about but never tried before.  The movie was “Mao’s Last Dancer”, which was about a Chinese ballet dancer who defected to the United States.

The movie was pretty good, but what really impressed me was the “Gold Class” experience.  The seats were arranged in couples and were huge, comfortable and you could lower and raise the back and the foot rest so that it almost turned into a bed.  There was a table where you could eat snacks, put your cocktails or even have a full 3 course meal (extra cost of course).  There was a service button where you could press anytime during the show, and a wait staff will come to you and take your orders.

Wow!  I don’t think I will ever be satisfied with watching movies in an ordinary cinema after this.  It’s a pity the experience is so expensive.
