Oldham Theatre: Everything You Need To Know About Singapore's Newest Film Destination

How often screenings will be held:

“Screenings will be held weekly on Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. There will also
be screenings on some public holidays. Tickets are priced at $10 for the general public while
seniors, students and NSmen are entitled to a concessionary price of $9.”

Award-winning Danish-Korean drama flick The Return is a key highlight to look out for – it will be screened as part of this year’s SIFA

AFA’s take on the current Singapore film scene:

“There is a general optimism about Singapore’s film scene. It is heartening to see many
Singapore filmmakers and artists who have succeeded in finding opportunities to produce
high-quality, internationally-recognised, innovative, and challenging works. There are now
commercially viable mainstream films that do not necessarily lack in artistry.

Demons by acclaimed Singaporean director Daniel Hui will be making its South-East Asian premiere at Oldham Theatre on its opening day

The infrastructure and hardware are available, and these are advantageous to Singapore
filmmakers. However, the challenge is for filmmakers to weave and tell their stories in ways
that will impact the public, so that these films will continue to be remembered in time to
come. This is where film archives like the AFA play an important role – as a resource of inspiration.”
