Great visit with the Frenchy group for a Film tour of Singapore
The post WWII years, especially the 1950s, saw Singapore’s golden age of cinema dominated by two movie companies, Shaw and Cathay. Although both these names survive in movie theatres today, only the delightfully nostalgic Shaw studios still exist. In recent years, the movie industry here has enjoyed something of a revival with many young Singaporean directors coming to the fore, helped by the many film festivals we now enjoy.[JanesTour]
Started at the Shaw studios (not in use anymore) stop by the Cathay Art Deco Cinema (& Small Museum) and finished at the Projector (an old movie theater) with a talk by Singaporean director Kevin Kwek.
