Mythical Cinemas: The Capitol of Singapore
Raphaël Millet / FR, 2020 / 52 min.
This documentary series takes viewers to mythical cinemas around the world. Every one has unmistakeably left its mark on its country and cinema’s history. In this episode, The Capitol in Singapore.
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.
