4. LOTUS FIVE STAR – SSC Broadway, Johor Bahru, Malaysia
Location: No. 41 80000, Johor Bahru
Tel: 07-223 3568
Comments: Small Cinema with low selection of movies.
The main drawback of catching movies in Malaysia is the stronger censorship (Malaysia is still a conservation country) compared to Singapore so expect more nudity/violence/and strong language scenes to be cut.
To dispel any myths, you will not see cockroaches and mouse running under your seats nor will you find weird people at the back of the cinema recording the film for pirated DVD productions. The cleanliness and quality of the visual and audio sound system is to a decent standard.
So join the queue for movie tickets and grab a popcorn set at RM$8/set (with drinks) as well. Sit back and enjoy your movie!
