Golden Screen Cinemas (GSC)
is the leading cinema exhibitor and distributor in Malaysia. It is a wholly owned subsidiary of PPB Group Berhad
, a member of the Kuok Group. From its initial operations of cane cultivation and sugar milling in 1968, the PBB Group Berhad has since grown into a major conglomerate.
In 1987, PPB Group and Golden Harvest (Int.) Ltd of Hong Kong jointly established Golden Communications (M) Sdn. Bhd. to operate a chain of cinemas in Malaysia which were leased from Shaw Brothers (M) Sdn. Bhd., a pioneer in Malaysian film industry.
Golden Communications (M) Sdn. Bhd. merged with Cathay Organisation (M) Sdn. Bhd. in 1997 to become the biggest company in the Malaysian cinema entertainment business. Golden Screen Cinemas Sdn. Bhd. was established as a result of the merger.
