HistoryEdit

Orange Sky Golden Harvest, a cinema operator based in Hong Kong was instrumental in the formation of Tanjong Golden Village, a joint venture with Tanjong of Malaysia and Village Roadshow of Australia. Tanjong bought out the remaining stakes for full ownership. The first TGV cinema in Malaysia opened in November 2004 at Bukit Raja Shopping Centre, and soon more than 30 cinemas were opened around Malaysia in 2005 alone. The first English movie to be shown was King Kong, and the second Tamil movie was Anniyan. In 2013, TGV started distributing movies theatrically.[5]

LocationsEdit

As of November 2020, TGV currently has 35 locations in Malaysia: 33 in Peninsular Malaysia and 2 in Sarawak. TGV will also open branches in four new locations in the coming years.
