The Projector Has Barbie & Oppenheimer Screenings With Themed Photo Ops For Your “Barbenheimer” Date 

Barbie & Oppenheimer at The Projector

Open TikTok, Instagram, or Threads and you’ll probably see endless talk of 2 things flooding your feed – Barbie and Oppenheimer. These latest movies have taken the world by storm, with plenty of people raving about them. 

If you’ve yet to catch these shows, consider planning a day out with your besties and watching them at The Projector at Golden Mile Tower. They’ve also busted out a bunch of Barbie and Oppenheimer-themed photo ops, so you can capture chio memories of your time there.

Catch the anticipated Barbie & Oppenheimer movies

In case you know nothing about these 2 new movies, here’s a quick rundown of them so you won’t be pestering your friends with questions during showtime.

Starting off with Barbie: the film follows the most recognisable doll in the world, played by Margot Robbie, as she embarks on a journey to rediscover herself after having gone through an existential crisis. Joining her on the ride is the iconic Ken, played by Ryan Gosling. We won’t spill any secrets, but expect all things glitz and glamour with a touch of feminism with this movie.

Meanwhile, Oppenheimer is a biographical film that details the makings of the world’s first atomic bomb by physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer, played by Cillian Murphy. Written and directed by Christopher Nolan, this movie takes on a more sombre tone with elements of heart-stopping action sequences and visuals – including the infamous detonation of the bombs. 

You might be wondering why these 2 shows have been constantly grouped together – even eliciting the name Barbenheimer – despite the significant differences in genre and plot. That’s because these films were released on the same day, meaning they are double feature movies.

When timed right, viewers can then catch both Barbie and Oppenheimer on the same day for maximum viewing pleasure. And given the nostalgia these 2 films bring, indie cinema The Projector makes for the place to watch them at. 

We’ve done the work and consolidated the cinema’s show timings for you. Those looking to hit up both films on the same day can consider these dates: 

  • 25th July 2023: Barbie at 4pm, Oppenheimer at 7.30pm
  • 26th July 2023: Barbie at 4.30pm, Oppenheimer at 7.30pm
  • 27th July 2023: Oppenheimer at 4.30pm, Barbie at 8.30pm

Live out your dream life with the Barbie photo ops

The Projector is known to curate top tier moves, so we’re not surprised that Barbie and Oppenheimer have been shortlisted for their screens. Aside from the shows, the place has also set up IG-worthy photo ops from now till the end of July 2023.

We may not live life in plastic, but it’s still pretty darn fantastic. Step inside the giant plastic box modelled after Barbie’s doll box, with her iconic pink home as the backdrop. If you’re awkward with your hands when posing, feel free to borrow the pink luggage prop and strike your best dream girl pose.

There’s also a vanity with a pink-lined mirror where you can take mirror selfies at. Or, take a seat at the half-black half-pink rocking chair – an ode to the Barbenheimer pairing of movies. Since these photo ops will likely feature your whole self, we recommend coming dressed to the nines so your IG feed will be lit
