Ms Karen Tan, co-founder of Singapore'’s only independent arthouse cinema, took a look at the two shuttered halls and was smitten. “We didn’t have the time to find investors,” she says. “We thought, ‘Let’s find a cinema operator, maybe.’ Because we are not from that background. But we could not find anyone. So, we decided to do it ourselves,” she says. - The Peak Magazine.

The Projector revives two cinema halls and the 5th floor foyer of the historic Golden Theatre as an independent cinema and creative platform that brings together a great selection of films, one-of-a-kind events, versatile spaces and delectable fare.

Chong Gay Theatres Ltd built golden Theatre and Golden Mile Tower and the architect was Goh Hock Guan Design Team.
