The Projector redefines the way you’re used to watching movies. Think of it more like a cinematic revival, a welcome departure from the faceless, corporate multiplexes with complete focus on the bottom line and you’ll be on the way to The Projector.
Occupying a unique multi-use creative space on the fifth floor of the modernist and iconic Golden Mile Tower, you’ll find old-school signage, stadium-style flip up seats, wooden armrests and letters painted onto the floor so you know where to sit. When you come to The Projector, you’ll remember that childlike anticipation of what it was like to be genuinely excited to go to the cinema.
The films vary from week to week so you’ll have to check the listings but you’ll find an eclectic assortment of modern and cult classics, horror films, indie and arthouse productions, foreign language films, retrospectives and theme nights. The Green Room seats 220 and is the main screening hall and the Redrum (pronounced ‘Red Room’ from a plot line in Kubrick’s The Shining) shows films presented by Golden Bar.
Looking more like a high school refectory than one of Singapore’s best cinemas, The Projector is for people who want to watch a great film with a beer and some bar snacks and who are looking for a real, exciting alternative to generic shiny floor multiplexes.
