poster Mythical Cinemas
For 90 years, The Capitol in Singapore – which opened in 1930 – was owned by prestigious families such as the Namazies and the Shaw brothers. The cinema was also a pawn in various historical, cultural and architectural issues. However, The Capitol always rose like a phoenix from the flames and therefore reflects cinema’s history in Singapore and the many changes the city has undergone.
