If you enjoy watching movies and are on the hunt for a cinema experience unlike any other, you’re going to love Projector X: Picturehouse, the Projector’s newest pop-up cinema at the Cathay that only recently opened on 19 August 2022!

The closure of the iconic Cathay cinema might have been bittersweet, but Picturehouse brings in the new with four refurbished cinema halls. Inspired by defunct iconic local cinemas, cinephiles might recognise familiar names such as Majestic, Yangtze, and Roxy.

In addition to arthouse films, the Picturehouse will also screen the latest movies, with Jordan Peele’s Nope currently screening alongside the extended cut of Everything Everywhere All at Once starring Michelle Yeoh, along with other film festival entries.

Since it’s horror season, the Picturehouse is specially screening horror cult classic The Shining. Bonus points if you rock up to a screening of the Shining in a themed outfit, which gets you a free tub of popcorn

And for those seeking a more intimate evening, the Picturehouse’s Ruby Room is set to host film-themed immersive dinners, as well as a sensory premium cinema experience
