The average Singaporean visits the cinema 4.2 times a year, which is remarkably high by global standards. It appears a diet of drama serials and online streaming hasn’t stopped many of us from sinking into cool, springy seats in the air-conditioned darkness of a cinema.

If you like nothing more than to hear the sweet crunch of someone else’s popcorn beneath the soles of your shoes, use this cheat sheet to determine where the most affordable tickets are any time of the week.

In my previous life, I was a property lawyer who spent most of my time struggling to get out of bed or stuck in peak hour traffic. These days, as a freelance commercial writer, I work in bed, on the beach, in parks and at cafes, all while being really frugal. I like helping other people save money so they can stop living lives they don't like.
