Well, after trying Blitz Megaplex Cinema in Bandung (see my post Paris Van Java), today is its soft opening in Grand Indonesia Jakarta. Not much can be revealed: ticket price, ~~schedule~~, and promotion (HSBC Credit Card Promo should be brought here too :) ), but I think it is the largest screen in Indonesia - 11 screens.
What I expect is more confortable seat (in Bandung was average) and cooler aircon. Anything else? competion in ticket price sounds good huh? Rp 20.000 - Rp 30.000 is acceptable, not to mention buy 1 get 1 promo.

Ticket price is Rp 40,000 (Fri-Sun) and Rp 25,000 (Mon-Thu). This is regular western movie pricing. Asian and festival film have different price. For those HSBC Gold Card holder, Buy 1 Get 1 promo for weekend and silver card holder can enjoy cheaper price everyday (30-40% off regular price).
Soon it will open two new megaplex at One Pacific Place located at SCBD Jakarta and Mall of Indonesia at Kelapa Gading Square Jakarta.
Tough competition forces Cineplex 21 group to adjust their price at EX, Senayan, and Senayan City XXI (they all located near Blitz), from Monday to Friday now only have to pay Rp 25,000 per ticket. Meanwhile Friday to Sunday you have to pay Rp 50,000 although BCA Card promo buy 1 get 1 still apply on weekend.
