This Saturday (18th March 2017), Kuala Terengganu will see its first movie theatre to open in 22 years, according to a report by The Malay Mail Online. This cinema was previously set to open last year, but has since been delayed to open to this year.
Lotus Five Star (LFS) Cinemas is the cinema that will be opening in Terengganu’s capital city, with 11 halls and up to 1631 seats. 6 of the cinema halls will reportedly open first, followed by another 5 halls later on.
The cinema will be opening in Paya Bunga Sentral, which is part of the Paya Bunga commercial complex in Kuala Terengganu.
J Revolusi will be the first Malay movie to be screened at the cinema, starting on its opening day.
According to Harian Metro, the head executive officer of Primeworks Studios, Datuk Ahmad Izham Omar addressed the opening of this film, stating,
“I am very proud that after 22 years of Kuala Terengganu having no cinemas, J Revolusi would be the first local film to premiere there.”
“The opening of the LFS Cinema in PB Sentral comes just in time for the coming school holidays this Saturday so families in Kuala Terengganu can come to LFS and hopefully choose to watch J Revolusi.”
The Barisan Nasional (BN)-led state government in Terengganu, helmed by Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Razif Abdul Rahman, started this initiative to open the cinema in conjunction with ‘Visit Beautiful Terengganu 2017’.
