14 Aug – Johor Bahru's newest mall, Paradigm Mall JB, will house the largest cinema in the state, the 16-screen Golden Screen Cinemas multiplex located on one of its six floors.
The new GSC Cinemas location will occupy approximately 60,000 square feet, with a seating capacity of 2,000 seats. It is also the sole GSC cinema in Johor Bahru, having closed down its previous outlet at another mall.
The older outlet at Johor Bahru's Pelangi Leisure Mall was closed down on 17 October 2013. Moviegoers have since lamented the fact that there were no GSC cinemas in the state.
Other cinemas in Johor Bahru now are MBO Cinemas U Mall, MBO Cinemas KSL City, LFS Cinemas Broadway JB, LFS Cinemas Plaza Tasek Skudai, LFS Cinemas Skudai Parade, LFS Cinemas IOI Mall Kulai, TGV Cinemas Tebrau City, TGV Cinemas Bukit Indah, TGV Cinemas AEON Kulaijaya, Cathay Cineplex City Square and Superstar Ulu Tiram.
Paradigm Mall JB, touted as the first and largest regional mall of its kind in Johor Bahru, is set to open in 2016.
