More than half the year is gone! Time to double-up the fun.
An Open-Air Cinema
Films at the Fort
Fort Canning Park
1 – 10 August 2014
In a busy city where going to the cinema usually means visiting an aircon-blasting shopping mall, Films at the Fort is set to once again offer Singaporeans a slice of the closer to nature cinematic experience. Set in the amphitheatre of Mother Nature, Fort Canning Park, choose from a selection of award winning films that will be featured each night. Topping it off, pre-order and enjoy a picnic hamper from Jones the Grocer or My Private Chef and enjoy the beautiful sun set with friends and family. Whether you are interested in new releases, classics, indie films or the first Singaporean film to win an award at Cannes, this event is certainly able to deliver a whole new experience.
