Films at the Fort open-air cinema


We often flock to Golden Village, Shaw, and Cathay for the latest blockbusters but when evening rolls around and the weather cools, there’s perhaps no better date idea than an outdoor cinema experience. Those who’ve battled for tickets for Cinewav’s seaside movie screenings and Movies in the Sky at MBS may be thrilled to hear that open-air cinema Films at the Fort makes its return this year as well.

After a 3-year hiatus due to the pandemic, the 8th edition of the event will be airing 11 different films daily from 10th-21st August 2022


Open-air cinema with food, wine and DJ music


Organised by the folks behind Hendrick’s Sunset Cinema, Films at the Fort presented by Casillero del Diablo will be happening at Fort Canning’s restored amphitheatre.

Each night, the screening starts at 7.45pm, but you’ll want to come down early as the gates are open from 5pm onwards. Chope a good seat, purchase some snacks and enjoy the sunset from the hill. While waiting for the movie to begin, guests can groove to live performances by DJs and instrumentalists.

Other than the cinema staple of popcorn ($6), Spiced Falafels ($14.50), Charcuterie Platters ($23.50) and Cheese Croquetas ($14.50) will be available as a sharing snack while you enjoy the show.
