Films At The Fort is situated in a natural amphitheatre within Fort Canning Park. We’re talking about a lush green field equipped with a giant projector screen and fairy lights, topped with a view of skyscrapers in the distance.
Grab your besties, boyfie, and family and pack along your best camera – you’re gonna get lots of vibey photos for Lemon8 and Instagram. Since the event kicks off right before sunset at 5.30pm, visitors can expect to enjoy both the golden hour and twinkles of stars in the night sky.
Good vibes will be in full swing as there’ll be a DJ and instrumentalists performing nightly. Not to mention, you can also fill your tummy at food stands by The Providore, selling mains and desserts.
