In 2012, Lotus Five Star reopened the cinema with two digital halls. The first multiplex with a computerised ticketing system in Malaysia is Golden Screen Cinemas in Leisure Mall in Cheras. It has four screens and 1356 seats. The first IMAX theatre in the country was located in Berjaya Times Square which hosts one screen and has 555 seats. Operations were ceased in 2010 and it is now occupied by GSC MAXX. As of 2013, all screens were made digital regardless of the type of movies played.
