Crazy Cheap Tickets

Looking for an excuse to catch a movie this week? Well, we’ve got great news for you.

Your movie ticket will only cost you $1 – that’s cheaper than a McFlurry!

What’s the catch? Not much really.

For starters, this promotion is only valid at Cathay Cineplex Parkway Parade Box Office which means you’ll have to endure the long commute to Parkway Parade if you really want those tickets.

As tickets are limited to the first 1,000 movie-goers daily, head down early and collect your queue number from Level 4 of the theatre’s complex. Staff will be stationed next to the escalator, near the medical centre to dispense a queue number for you. Queues will start at 11am each day.

If you’re planning on catching a movie as a group, take note that you can only redeem a maximum of 2 tickets. The movie ticket has to be used on the day of redemption as well.

Do take note that 3D movies, film festivals, movie marathon tickets or special priced tickets are not subject to this promotion.

Now Showing

Here’s a list of movies they’re showing on Wednesday (26 September):

Can’t Wait For Halloween? Get Your Scream On With This Horror Film Festival At The Cathay

Singapore has its fair share of creepy urban stories. You may be familiar with the tales of Old Changi Hospital, the last cubicle in the girls’ toilet and kids playing marble on the roof of your house.

Horror stories are arguably Singapore’s unofficial national obsession and a genre that has been seeing an unprecedented boom in recent years.

What better way to kick start Halloween season than now with Scream Asia Film Festival – Singapore’s first ever horror film festival.

From Quiz Nights To Pop-Up Cinemas, Funzing Lets You Enjoy Unlimited Activities For $16/Mth

It’s no secret that going out in Singapore can be a rather expensive affair — a good meal at pretty much anywhere will cost you upwards of $10, and unless you’re willing to call it a night there you’ll can count on forking out at least another 20 on something else.

Then there’s the issue of actually finding something interesting to do. Sure, you could head down to Orchard Road again, but window shopping at Uniqlo kind of loses its lustre after doing it for the fifth time this month.

If these are some of the problems plaguing your social life, then the good folks at Funzing might have a solution with their Unlimited Pass.

Not Your Average Date Night

It almost sounds too good to be true, but for a mere $16 you’ll be entitled to a host of events that the “community marketplace” has curated.

[caption id="attachment_36551" align="aligncenter" width="1202"] Image Credit: Funzing[/caption]

These events aren’t your typical weekend fare either — this month’s selection include Harry Potter and Rick and Morty quiz nights that’ll put your respective fandoms to the test, as well as pop up cinema screenings for critically acclaimed films like Lady Bird and I Am Not Your Negro.

The quiz nights will take place at Tree Lizard (Dempsey Road) and The Armoury (Beach Road) respectively, while the movies will be shown at the always-cozy Blu Jaz Cafe. At the very least, you can say that you spent your night somewhere new, which could be considered a victory in itself.

[caption id="attachment_36552" align="aligncenter" width="2048"]Blu Jaz Cafe Image Credit: Blu Jaz Cafe[/caption]

Considering that individual tickets for these events hover around around $8-$9 range, it makes sense to get the Unlimited Pass at its promotional price if more than one of these events are up your alley.

Demand is also surprisingly high (tickets for the classic Japanese animated film Princess Mononoke are already sold out), so head on over to Funzing’s website to secure your slot now.

Continue The National Day Celebrations With Good Makan, Music, And Movies This Weekend

Post National Day Feature

Another National Day might have come and gone, but that doesn’t mean that the celebrations have to stop.

If you’re not ready to put away your red t-shirts and remove Home from your Spotify playlist just yet, here are some events that’ll help you scratch that patriotic itch over the weekend:

Independent Market National Day Fair 2018

[caption id="attachment_36482" align="aligncenter" width="1728"]Post National Day Independent Market Image Credit: Independent Market[/caption]

Have the recent festivities spurred you to fill your home and / or wardrobe with locally-inspired merchandise? Then Independent Market’s National Day Fair is definitely the place to be.

Featuring wares from an assortment of homegrown brands, you’ll find everything from notebooks to cushion covers — all of which feature local icons such as the Merlion, chilli crab and the famous Toa Payoh dragon playground, to name a few.

This is one of the rare occasions that so many local brands will be in one place at the same time, so you best head down unless you’re cool with scouring the island to find them again.

Independent Market National Day Fair 2018
Venue: VivoCity Southeast Boulevard
Date: 10th-13th Aug 2018
Time: 10am-10pm
Admission: Free

RWS Street Eats 2018

[caption id="attachment_36480" align="aligncenter" width="1366"]Post National Day RWS Street Eats Image Credit: Resorts World Sentosa[/caption]

What better way to celebrate Singapore than to indulge in its favourite activity?

Following its highly successful debut in 2017, Resorts World Sentosa’s Street Eats event is back for a second year, featuring a curated collection of over 20 street food stalls from Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand and of course, Singapore.

This year’s special guests include Chef Steven Long from Vietnam, who’ll be serving his signature Pho and Vietnamese Summer Rolls. while Chefs Zainal Abidin and Mohd Fairus, on the other hand, are set to satisfy both your eyes and mouth with their Flying Roti Canai preparation / performance hybrid.

Entertainment has never tasted this good.

RWS Street Eats 2018
Venue: Resorts World Sentosa, Malaysian Food Street (Waterfront Level 1)
Date: 10th-19th Aug 2018
Time: 11am-9pm (Monday-Thursday) 9am-10pm (Friday-Sunday)
Admission: Free

Garden Rhapsody: Singapore Edition

[caption id="attachment_36484" align="aligncenter" width="1670"]Post National Day Garden Rhapsody Image Credit: Gardens By The Bay[/caption]

If you’re looking for a place to just sit back and relax, head on over to the Supertrees at Gardens By The Bay, where there’ll be a special National Day edition of the Garden Rhapsody light and sound show.

The light show’s hypnotic visuals should be reason enough to head down, but the real attraction is the star-studded group of Benjamin Kheng, Nathan Hartono, Rani Singam and iNCH, who will be performing a collection of local tunes to keep you in the National Day mood.

Some of Singapore’s best musicians performing some of Singapore’s best songs at one of Singapore’s most iconic landmarks…for free? Yeah, there really isn’t any reason for you not to go.

Garden Rhapsody: Singapore Edition
Venue: Gardens By The Bay, Supertree Grove
Date: 10th-12th Aug 2018
Time: 7:45pm, 8:45pm
Admission: Free

Films At The Fort

[caption id="attachment_36479" align="aligncenter" width="2048"]Post National Day Films At The Fort Image Credit: Films At The Fort[/caption]

Okay, this one isn’t exactly National Day themed, but paying a little too much for a hipster experience has become so commonplace in Singapore that it could be considered a national pastime.

At $30 a ticket, Films At The Fort isn’t exactly the cheapest date idea, but you’ll be hard pressed to find another event that allows you to watch a classic movie in an open-air setting under the stars. It’s a unique concept for sure, and one you should experience at least once in your life.

Romance Classic The Notebook and sex comedy Blockers will be screening on Saturday and Sunday respectively, so there’s something for everyone. The organisers are also expecting “a strong demand for tickets”, so be sure to get yours quick.

Films At The Fort
Venue: Fort Canning Park
Date: 11th August 2018 (The Notebook), 12th Aug 2018 (Blockers)
Time: 7:30pm
Admission: $29.80

Nothing To Watch At The Cinemas? Relive Iconic Studio Ghibli And Pixar Films At This Event In July

popcorn pop up cinema

Are you a cinephile? Do you “curate” movies to watch?

If there’s nothing currently showing in the cinemas that interests you, how about going to a pop up cinema?

[caption id="attachment_35962" align="aligncenter" width="2048"]popcorn pop up cinema Image Credit: Popcorn[/caption]

Organised by Funzing and Popcorn, the Popcorn Pop Up Cinema takes place on multiple days in a week, at multiple locations, each playing a different movie.

Pop Up Cinema Experience

Apart from their interesting choices for movies to show, another good thing about this pop up cinema is that it’s only $9 for a movie. Which is cheaper than what I usually pay for at Golden Village.

What’s more, if you buy their unlimited pass, you’ll be able to go for as many Pop Up Cinema screenings, Quiz Nights, and Funzing Talks within 30 days.

1 Unlimited pass is $16, 2 for $28, and a Family pack of 4 passes will be $48. You can purchase it here.

Now, here’s a list of movies that they’ll be showing for the month of July.

Golden Village Cinema Is Bringing Movies Back To Bedok After 10 Years

Golden Village Bedok

While Bedok might be one of the most densely populated neighbourhoods in Singapore, it’s strange that the area does not have a cinema of its own.

One would have to go to Eunos, Tampines or further to catch a movie. The last movie theatre that served Bedok residents, was the iconic Princess Theatre, which closed 10 years ago.

Today, Golden Village Multiplex, Singapore’ leading cinema exhibitor, has opened its doors at Bedok with a new 576-seater multiplex at DjitSun Mall Bedok.

[caption id="attachment_35321" align="aligncenter" width="7952"]Golden Village Bedok Image Credit: Golden Village[/caption] [caption id="attachment_35322" align="aligncenter" width="7952"]Golden Village Bedok Image Credit: Golden Village[/caption]

It’s somewhat serendipitous for the new Golden Village Bedok multiplex to be standing where the Princess Theatre once stood. It’s almost as if the Princess Theatre is passing on the baton to Golden Village.

Bringing Movie Magic To Bedok

This new cineplex will house 6 screens and can seat up to 576 people.

[caption id="attachment_35319" align="aligncenter" width="7952"]Golden Village Bedok Image Credit: Golden Village[/caption] [caption id="attachment_35320" align="aligncenter" width="7952"]Golden Village Bedok Image Credit: Golden Village[/caption]

That’s not all. In line with the opening, Golden Village is launching a NEW curry-flavoured gourmet popcorn. This new popcorn is exclusive to Golden Village Bedok and will only be available for the first 3 months after the opening.

[caption id="attachment_35318" align="aligncenter" width="7741"]Golden Village Bedok Image Credit: Golden Village[/caption]

Golden Village will also be introducing 3 other popcorn flavours to all its cinemas islandwide – Seaweed Wasabi, Caramel, and Cheese.

If you’re living in Bedok, dry your tears because you no longer have to head to another neighbourhood to catch a movie!

Bishan’s Carnival This Weekend Offers Food, FREE Workshops, And Black Panther Screening

Craving Communities Festival

Bishan is probably one of the best neighbourhoods to live in Singapore. With 2 intersecting MRT lines that lead to town and the ulu West side of Singapore, nowhere is too far when you live in Bishan.

This weekend, Bishan will be having their own festival, complete with food, a retail market, workshops, games, live band performances, and even a movie under the stars!

Here’s what you can expect at the Craving Communities Festival!

Eat, Play, Create

Happening this weekend, 23 to 24 June 2018, the Craving Communities Festival is a short but fun-packed festival for the whole family.

What To Eat

I’m not kidding. I mean, just look at the food that’ll be available at the fair.

Kway Guan Huat Joo Chiat Popiah is known for their traditional handmade authentic popiah and kueh pie tee.

If you’re not familiar, they’ve been making their famous popiah rolls for over 70 years and no one makes better popiah skin. In recognition of their rich history, they’re even included in the National Heritage Board’s historical food trail!

You might also recognise some of these vendors who were also at Artbox Singapore 2018 as well as Market On Wheels that’s ongoing at Bugis until 8 July!

That’s right, The Swag Social will also be running a booth with Carrot Cubes, serving up cheesy popcorn chicken, fries, Earl Grey Milk Tea, and traditional handmade carrot cakes with a twist!

Fish Sh-nack will also be making an appearance with their very own Crispy Fish Skin snacks in 4 flavours and their Fish Sh-nack Donburi.

If you’re sweating buckets in this heat, cool down with modern “sng baos” (ice slushie packs) from Coldshave! Available in unique flavours such as Avocado, Yuzu Longan, and Watermelon Strawberry!

What To Shop

Zombies Are Taking Over Our Army Camps In S’pore’s First Zombie Film

zombiepura singapore

What happens when you combine Ah Boys To Men and the zombies from The Walking Dead?

You get Zombiepura.

If you don’t already know, Singapore is about to have our very own zombie movie!

Something Evil’s Lurking

Zombiepura finally released their movie poster and we’re all feeling very excited and maybe slightly confused.

Honestly, the guy in the poster seems like he wants revenge for all the tekans under the hot sun and route march during his life in NS.

The poster has since garnered quite a bit of attention on their Facebook page and it seems like most Singaporeans are excited for this ABTM X The Walking Dead collaboration.

Singapore film director Jacen Tan produced a script for Zombiepura 8 years ago while he was on guard duty during National Service. The best ideas comes when you’re damn sian doing guard duty. Good on you, Jacen Tan.

The $1mil comedy movie is slated for release in the second half of the year. The movie revolves around a zombie outbreak in an army camp where a lazy reservist soldier (Alaric Tay) and a gungho sergeant (Benjamin Heng) are forced to work together to survive.

If you’re expecting George Romero’s “Night Of The Living Dead” kind of movie, well, you’ll be getting a “Zombieland” movie instead.

So, if you love horror and comedy, this movie is right up your alley.

The movie has been in the making for 7 years! It took months of preparation, over 100 crew members and extras, gallons of blood, sweat and tears and a whole month of shoot. Talk about dedication.

We’ve got real high hopes and expectations for Zombiepura once it hits theatres. But please, for the love of God, let’s pray they avoid tacky CG effects and product placements.

The poster and concept art both look promising! One thing’s for sure, we can’t wait to see how the zombies turn out.

But the real question is: What do we do during a zombie outbreak? Can we survive? Will SAF deploy their men to protect us?

I guess we’ll never know.

Pro-tip: Whatever happens, play dead.

Release Date: Second half of 2018
