Lost But Found: Outdoor Cinemas In Singapore

Even with pre­mier suites rolled out in mod­ern day cin­e­ma oper­a­tors, going to the movies is an acces­si­ble lux­u­ry for us. In exchange for a good S$11 or so, plus a dol­lar for book­ing fee per­haps, we get to ful­fill our enter­tain­ment needs in plush chairs…
