Projector X is a disco-turned-cinema likely to be around for just 18 months

Once an abandoned Chinese discotheque; now an arthouse cinema, bar and platform for creative endeavours. Helmed by The Projector, Projector X is an all-new pop-up concept at Clarke Quay’s Riverside Point offering anything but mainstream fun.

Taking over the mall’s fourth floor that previously housed a Chinese nightclub, the folks at The Projector have been working diligently with design firm Wynk Collaborative to offer locals a brand new hangout spot. More than just a movie theatre, the space has got all the makings of a Projector-founded space.
 


 

What better way to explore the cool cinema hall, Neon Room, than with a documentary about legendary Mexican painter Frida Kahlo? Decked out with artworks, neon lights, comfy plush seats and coffee tables, the place is well-spaced out for Covid times too.
 


 

In fact, the big screen affair even boasts a silent disco experience as wireless headphones are provided to all guests—which means no distractions, and the entertainment continues.

Grab a bite at the Riverside Bar which serves much more than The Projector’s hot favourites like chilli dogs and grilled cheese sandwiches. There are small plates and sharing platters here, such as tempeh chips, crab cake burgers and topshell salads. Wash those down with some natural wines or even craft beer from Rocky Ridge brewery.
 


 

Likely to be around for just 18 months (it is a pop-up after all), the space is perfect as our island’s first purpose-built, socially-distanced theatre. And who knows? More of such concepts may start coming our way, although that’s all under wraps for now.

So just head down this weekend to enjoy the special Frida Kahlo documentary to discover the woman behind the big brows and floral crowns as well as the new Projector X.


Other movies currently on show include Kinky Boots the Musical, Forever Fever and Chicago. More information available here.
