Rolling out the red carpet
The historic Capitol Theatre, built in 1929, has been reopened in grand style and is now one of the region’s largest single screen cinemas. Set in a neoclassical-style development in Singapore's city centre, the 800-seat theatre hosts red carpet movie premieres, first-run screenings, film festivals and stage productions. The adjacent mall contains high-end shops, a patisserie and bars for that pre-show tipple.

A small curated luxury shopping centre of local designer shops and Marimekko. This relaxing enclave also houses the refurbished theatre, a food court, Asian and Western bistros and restaurants. Linked to the MRT, this place is a great place to get away from the crowds and stroll in the comfort of air conditioning or respite from torrential downpour. Have tea, coffee, a drink, brunch with your girlfriends then go shopping!
