Andrei Tarkovsky Focus: Solaris
April is looking to be an promising month for cinephiles — The Projector is putting on a selection of ’70s works by Russian auteur Andrei Tarkovsky, who’s widely considered to be one of the cinema’s greatest directors. Sci-fi fans should not miss out on Solaris (1972), an introspective epic that explores the darkest limits of the human soul and mind. More details here. April 5/May 11, 7.30pm The Projector, #05-00 Golden Mile Tower Le Bon Funk Turns 1
Natural wine and bistro Le Bon Funk was one of the coolest entrants to the local F&B scene last year  (check out our profile of owner Keirin Buck & sommelier Josee Yeomans here) and in a blink of an eye, they’re ready to celebrate their first anniversary. To do so, they’re collaborating with one-Michelin-starred Canadian-Chinese chef Jonathan Tam for a one-night-only celebration that accepts no reservations — it’s all walk-ins only. The menu? Fried mortadella sandwich, nduja-stuffed chicken wings and beef tartare. Our advice: get down there early. More details here. April 7, 2pm till late Le Bon Funk, 29 Club Street Miss Chinatown presents Lion City Bass
Located just next door to the now-defunct Lepark, Miss Chinatown is a new F&B spot on the roof-top of People’s Park Complex and they’re throwing what looks to be a great party, especially for those who are fans of drum ‘n’ bass, dancehall, reggae, hip hop and the like. If you’ve missed the casual, anything-goes vibes of the old The Great Escape bar behind The Projector, this looks to be your new hang-out. More details here. April 5, 7pm – 12am Miss Chinatown, #06-01/02 People’s Park Complex Actually Affordable Artist Market
Affordability is an amorphous topic and obviously subjective depending on who you ask but the Actually Affordable Artist Market promises to be on the more egalitarian end with prices at $300 and below. A roster of 18 local and regional up-and-coming artists will be hawking their fares. More details here. April 7, 2pm – 7pm Camp Kilo Charcoal Club, 66 Kampong Bugis #01-01   Stamford Arts Centre opening weekend
