Big-Screen Buffs Rejoice: TGV to Open Cinema in Miri 2014


"Big....screen...."


TGV Cinemas Sdn Bhd will open an eight-screen cinema complex in Miri, Sarawak by early next year. So besides Star Cineplex (the Low-Calorie version) and Golden Screen Cinema (the Diet version - I think), TGV is going to open an eight-screen cinema complex very soon. Probably to be called Sugar-Free version.

Where in Miri though? I have no freakin' idea. Uh, they forgot to tell.

Possible guesses: That new building in front of Imperial Mall? Because that building is like the kid in school who tries to outdo everything you did, one-up everything you had, and even try to have the same friends you had. It's just that kind of building. In this case that buidling looks like it is trying to one-up Bintang Megamall. Which is fine, because no one really likes Bintang Megamall anyway. Because of the jams it causes. Buildings cause traffic jams? Welcome to Miri.

So, I digress a little bit.

What can you do with eight screens?  8 screens * 2 hour movies = 16 hours of viewing time, that's practically waking person's whole day! After which is 8 hours of sleep, perfect for the Big Screen Junkie / soon-to-be-zombie.
Feed me movies... moar.. I SAID MOAR MOVIES


If what I'm reading is correct, it seems like Miri is TGV's first foray into East Malaysia. They "may expand" to Kuching and Kota Kinabalu in time. You know, probably starting with Mirian as guinea pigs.

Because we all know all Mirians (in the eyes of elsewhere) are all just lounging around on oil with oil wells sticking out of their backyards, are rich as hell and can't spend the money quickly enough.
