The Projector Takes Over Riverside’s Abandoned Siam Dius

If you’re anything like Singapore’s revered, sleek, eclectic indie cinema with only two halls, a ghastly astro turf and a mobile bar selling popcorn and overpriced crisps, known as The Projector, then the COVID-19 pandemic would’ve made you feverish for new ideas. In hopes of creating something ‘electric’ yet original and sustainable, a brand new concept dubbed ‘Projector X’ emerged.

Here to serve you fresh experiences in spaces you never thought about, Projector X aims to ‘take over, pop up, and move on’, essentially keeping all edgy movie buffs on their toes. Opening for the first time in the heart of Clarke Quay, at Riverside Point, the all-new Projector X has taken over an abandoned fourth floor Chinese disco, with the help of Wynk Collaborative!

Set to take residence here for the next 18 months, Projector X will feature ‘lights brighter than your future’ in an all-new neon Room with artwork by Mojoko, showcasing a cosy and socially distanced 48-seater space, private booths and coffee tables, alongside a big screen experience with wireless headphones for the optimal viewing experience!

Complete with an in-house ‘Riverside bar’, this new and improved pop up space will serve more than just The Projector cinema favourites like chili dogs and grilled cheese sandwiches. Guests seeking new experiences can also expect a variety of small plates and sharing platters with a touch of inspiration from the location’s siam diu past. Think tempeh chips, crab cake burgers and topshell salads with craft beer on draft from Rocky Ridge brewery, an extensive range of bottled craft beers, natural wines and Sunday Punch cocktails!
