The Projector Celebrates is 9th Anniversary with Special Screenings

By InCinemas  /  03 Jan 2024 (Wednesday)

Nine years ago, The Projector had a dream to be the havoc indie cinema they always knew Singapore needed, catering to a movie-going audience that’s looking for something beyond mainstream Hollywood fare.

Today, they’re not just an indie cinema, but also the nexus for diverse creative communities – and a staunch supporter of progressive causes in Singapore! What’s more, they now have a spanking new home in Cineleisure, on top of their original base camp in Golden Mile Tower.

To celebrate their 9th Anniversary, The Projector is bringing back three of their longest-running and top-grossing titles – milestones on a crazy journey that will hopefully take them to even more exhilarating and unexpected places.

Here's what you can look out for:

Parasite (2019)

Ki-taek's family of four is close, but fully unemployed, with a bleak future ahead of them. The son Ki-woo is recommended by his friend, a student at a prestigious university, for a well-paid tutoring job. Carrying the expectations of all his family, Ki-woo heads to the Park family home for an interview. But following this first meeting between the two families, an unstoppable string of mishaps lies in wait.

Taxi Tehran (2015)

For an exceptionally lithe, inventive 80 minutes, banned Iranian filmmaker Jafar Panahi himself drives a taxi through the busy streets of Tehran, picking up various passengers who serve as conduits for a provocative discussion of Iranian social mores and the art of cinematic storytelling.

Taxi Tehran has won multiple awards, including the Golden Berlin Bear at the 2015 Berlin International Film Festival.

Tiong Bahru Social Club (2020)

Set against the backdrop of charming Tiong Bahru, and the former Pearl Bank apartments, follow Ah Bee (Thomas Pang) on his comedic odyssey as a Happiness Agent with the Tiong Bahru Social Club - a pilot project using data to build the happiest neighbourhood in the world in an ageing Singaporean district.

Director Tan Bee Thiam’s offbeat satirical comedy takes a whimsical and soft sci-fi approach to poke fun at Singapore’s preoccupation with results-driven practicalities and questions the construct of happiness in Singapore.
