Do you know that cinema operator, GV runs a GV Movie Club that has over 540,000 registered members? Singapore’s current population stands at 5.8 million. That is almost 10% of our total population – which means 1 in 10 residents in Singapore is a GV Movie Club member!

Why do so many people signed up?

Three simple reasons:

1. Membership is FREE
2. Singaporeans love watching movies
3. There are lots of amazing perks available

One of the most popular benefits for member is that you get to buy movie tickets from GV cinemas at a discounted rate of S$6.50 every Tuesday. The most popular privilege is for the gala premiere and preview screenings tickets giveaway via the GV Movie Club facebook page.

GV Movie Club was first launched on 1 September 2007. The icon/mascot for GV Movie Club is know as Mr Popcorn and looks like this:

These events include movie parties, special promotions, free movie tickets and invitation to movie premieres. Visit the official GV Movie Club website for more details.

The winners got to meet Hugh Jackman in person!

This is a priceless experience that you cannot put dollars and cents to. I was at the fans meet in Seoul too. Hugh Jackman is a really friendly guy and he autographed at least one item for all the ten people in the GV Movie Club entourage. He signed my fan meet pass for me.

Some even got to take close-up photos together with him. Check out these pictures I took at the fan meet:
