Cathay Cineleisure Orchard (Chinese: 国泰乌节电影娱乐城) is an urban mall located at 8 Grange Road, Singapore. The building is managed by Cathay Organisation under its subsidiary company of Cathay Cineleisure International. The mall opened in 1997 after the previous building, the old Orchard Cinema, was torn down in 1994.

This youth lifestyle mall has a mix of food, fashion and leisure tenants which include a Koufu food court in the basement, and a section of youth-themed shops, eateries and hair salon on the second floor known as L2. The centre has cafes and bistros, and a wide range of food and beverage outlets. It also houses a karaoke lounge on Level 8 and the largest e-gaming hub on Orchard Road, 2MAX on Level 9.

Cathay Cineplex Orchard operates fifteen movie halls with six on the fourth floor, six on the sixth and three on the ninth.

The mall runs its own signature events including the Cineleisure Next Online Sensation (CNOS),[1] All-Babes Cineleisure Dance (ABCD) Battle[2] and Cineleisure Christmas Countdown Parties.

The building has won accolades such as the "SIA-ICI (Singapore Institute of Architects - ICI Paints) Colour Award" for its creative use of colours in its building design. Two of its cinemas (Halls 3 and 6) were voted Singapore's best screens in a survey conducted by The Straits Times in April 1998. In another survey by Ad Post, readers voted Cathay Cineplex Orchard their "Favourite Cinema in Singapore".[3]
