Shaw CCK is located in the Lot 1 Shopping Complex. Having housed inside a shopping complex, do have its advantage. Take for example, customers do not need to wait impatiently outside the theatre for the show to start. Instead, they can choose to do some shopping in the shopping complex while waiting for the show to start. During the recent revamp, Lot 1 Shopping Complex had added new tenants in its extension block. This would definitely give one more reason to shop in Lot 1.
Shaw CCK is not exactly a big cineplex with only four theatres for viewing. With such limited viewing space, it would means that the number of shows shown per day would be limited. Nevertheless, one can still find the latest and hottest movie shown here. Queuing up for the tickets were rather breeze and fuss free. However, the customer service officer whom we bought the tickets from was 'unfriendly'. Perhaps, she had assumed that we would know what she want so she did not bother to even speak to us when she need us to select our seats.
I liked the fact that we get to select our desired seats from the computer screen. This would not only give us a complete view of the theatre but at the same time, we can also know how far we are from the screen. Seated too near the screen would give us stiff neck at times. So, it would be best not to seat too near the screen. :)
Our movie was being screened in theatre 2. Theatre 2 has basically a three-columns seating arrangement and one of the column have only 2 seats by itself. This 2-seats column would make a great space for lovers who wish to have some privacy while enjoying the show. However, i was told that there were not couple seats, where the middle handle can be push up to form a larger seating space.
Personally, i do not enjoy their seats that much as i felt that they were too soft to my liking. Beside the softness, i do think that their seats were pretty small and can get quite uncomfortable if one needs to watch a 'marathon' show. As for their sound system, i find it to be bit 'out of tune'. Sometimes, i would hear abnormal pitches that do not seem to gel with the movie at all. As for their screen, i do find some flickering lines occasionally. These lines have somehow spoiled the entire movie picture and not to mention our movie experience as well.
Shaw CCK being a cinema for more than 10 years, guess such imperfect conditions can make one understandable. Still, with the ever rising movie ticket prices, consumer would definitely expect more from the cinema to provide an ultimate movie experience.
