My Experience At Shaw Theatres, JCube IMAX!!!

Sponsored Event

Hi guys!!! Got invited by omy.sg to watch The Amazing Spiderman at Shaw Theatres JCube, IMAX. Hehehe, it was my first time watching a movie in an IMAX Theatre!
Shaw Theatres JCube is cinema operator's latest multiplex and it opened on 5 April with 7 screens, including an IMAX theatre (Singapore's second). Bringing Hollywood blockbusters and quality entertainment right to the doorsteps of residents in the west of Singapore.


About Shaw Theatres

Shaw Theatres, part of the Shaw Organisation, was founded by the Shaw Brothers and has been operating cinemas in Singapore since 1927. With Shaw Theatres JCube, it now owns six multiplexes across the island, and they feature the latest in cinema technologies like IMAX, Dolby 7.1 Surround and RealD 3D systems. Shaw Theatres also manages a seventh multiplex, Century Cineplex, which is privately owned.

Hmmmmmm, if you guys are wondering what is IMAX?

The IMAX's Digital Theatre System offers the most immersive movie-going experience possible. For a start, 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% increased in screen area.

The IMAX Experience is recognised around the world as of the highest-quality and most immersive cinematic experience ever created. Movie fanatics were willing to wait two to three weeks for seats to the IMAX versions of major blockbusters like Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, and Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol at Shaw Theatres LIDO IMAX! There is clearly a demand for IMAX Digital Theatres.

It was a pretty cool experience watching The Amazing Spiderman in IMAX! Basically to summarize what I said on top because some of you guys might get confused between IMAX experience and a regular normal theater.

IMAX is a huge theater with a gigantic curved screen. It's usually the most advanced top quality sound and video to show movies. It's definitely worth seeing on IMAX its fun and a nice experience.


WHY IS IT BETTER THAN NORMAL THEATRES?

1. Crystal-Clear Images
Whether you're experiencing a movie in 2D or 3D, the visual clarity is unsurpassed.

2. Laser-Aligned Sound
A powerful state-of-the-art digital surround sound system features laser-aligned loudspeakers precisely tuned for each movie presentation. You'll experience fantastic sound quality regardless of where you are seated.

3. Immersive Theatre Geometry
IMAX theatre geometry is designed to maximize your field of view. You'll feel fully immersed-like you're IN the movie !
With Regine & Christina! (:

My experience at Gills N Shells (Lavender)

I was invited for a food tasting session at Gills N Shells not long ago to try out their new dishes. Gills N Shells is a restaurant/drinking place that is inspired by the ocean. The restaurant specialises in seafood, thus they offer a vary of seafood dishes. They are dedicated to serve quality food with the best quality. Gills N Shells is easily accessible as they are located just behind Hotel Boss facing the river. The nearest train station is at Lavender MRT Station, thus it will only take a 5 minutes walk to get to this restaurant.

Gills N Shells recently launched their seafood platter served in a dim sum basket. As mentioned, there is a variety of seafood choices you can select from. However, there is a minimum order of three seafood choices. If you are an adventurous person or you can eat a lot, you may wish to order the All-in-A Basket Special. It comes along with all the seafood listed in the menu.

My internship in Japan (Niigata)

If you haven't read my previous blogposts about my overseas industrial attachment at Japan you can click on the links below: http://www.uncletehpeng.com/2014/09/exploring-niigata-japan-kite-museum.html http://www.uncletehpeng.com/2014/08/my-trip-to-japan-niigata-day-1.html''

Working in Japan is one of my greatest experience so far! The people there are so nice to communicate too and they are not only patient but very kind too. Despite the communication barrier, we were still able to translate our body language to talk to each other. The only funny thing is when we have to use Google Translate to talk to each other. Above is a picture of a huge tentage that my colleague and I built. Do note that everything including the tent sheets are made from scratch! 

I was attached to a logistics company during my internship period! The company has many years of experience in the industry thus I learnt plenty of things about administration & practical work. Japanese are very passion…
