I don’t know where I got the impression that the cinema at Waterway Point is open 24 hours. But the fact is, it isn’t. Bummer. The cinema will be open as per the other Shaw cinemas elsewhere. There will be midnight shows on Friday nights and Saturday nights (eve of public holidays). At this point in writing, I have yet to catch a movie at Waterway Point’s Shaw Theatres. I hope to watch one soon. 🙂
It is a suburban cinema with the most number of screens in Singapore. There are 11 of them. And it has a digital IMAX theatre, the 3rd in Singapore.
Mr. Mark Shaw, Executive Vice President of Operations, Shaw Theatres, said: “Our patrons can look forward to more Blockbusters released in IMAX like Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice (release on 24 March) and Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War (release on 28 April) which will feature select footage shot with IMAX cameras.”
Mr. Christopher Shaw, Executive Vice President of Film Distribution, added: “For this Chinese New Year, we will be releasing sequels to box office hits such as From Vegas to Macau III and The Monkey King 2, as well as local film such as Jack Neo’s Long Long Time Ago. Audiences who are looking for critically acclaimed and Academy Award nominated titles can also enjoy a variety of films like Room, The Revenant (also in IMAX) and Spotlight at our theatres.”

About IMAX’s Digital Theatre System
IMAX’s projection technology delivers crystal-clear images. The dual projection system projects left-eye and right-eye images simultaneously thus eliminating depth distortion during fast-moving scenes.
IMAX’s audio system creates laser-aligned digital sound for accurate and realistic sound images with the largest dynamic range. This enables the sound to be crisp enough to hear a pin drop and precise enough to know exactly where it dropped!
Then there is IMAX’s customised theatre geometry, which maximises your field of view. The high-gain screen results in exceptionally bright images and unparalleled 3D effect. The screen is also slightly curved and sits closer to the audience, creating a larger effective screen, which is equivalent to a 20% to 230% increase in screen area.
Shaw Theatres is located at B2-11 of Waterway Point. If you’re heading to the cinema from the Punggol MRT station, take Exit A out of the station, then turn right into the East Wing of the mall. Head down to B2. 🙂
