The average Singaporean visits the cinema often, with over 20 million cinema-goers each year since 2010. 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. But movie ticket prices in Singapore have been slowly creeping upwards.

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.

I used to be MoneyDumb. I hung out at H&M every day and thought that a $50 lunch set was a good deal. These days, I spend my time researching the crap out of life and trying to maximise utility on micro-decisions. I'm not sure if that's an improvement.
