While Netflix, Amazon and Itunes have made watching movies at home convenient, the experience of going down to the movies with friends is one that is not readily replicated at home. Here are some places you should head down to for that awesome movie experience.
1. Ciné Club
Okay, so this is not a cinema- rather, it is a movie club hosted by the Alliance Française de Singapour. However, I would argue that it being a movie club is even better for those among us who are flying solo- after all, what could be better than watching awesome films and perhaps making a new friend or two?
Address: Alliance Française de Singapour , 1 Sarkies Rd, Singapore 258130
2. The Projector
One of the only independent theatres left in Singapore, The Projector shows both box offices successes as well as smaller, indie films. They also occasionally host film festivals, which can be quite valuable to foreign language students since they get to experience overarching themes in films that are produced within a language.
Address: 6001 Beach Road, #05-00, Golden Mile Tower, 199589
3. Carnival Cinemas
Located at the Second floor of Shaw Towers, Bombay Talkies exclusively screens Hindi movies- presumably for Indian foreign workers. That said, if you’re learning Hindi, you might as well go take a look. While the tickets are more expensive, you’re getting more bang for your buck, given the long duration of Bollywood movies.
Address: 100 Beach Road, #02-00 Shaw Towers, 189702, Singapore
