Tucked within the Arts House, the Screening Room is an intimate 75-seat film theatre. Once a space for administrative duties in the Old Parliament House, the space has now been transformed into a cinema for screening independent films.
It presents a mix of domestic and international films, and hosts talks and regular workshops. The old flip-up chairs housed in the heritage building gives the Screening Room a quaint, old-school feel.
Established to provide support for independent filmmakers, the Screening Room gives budding auteurs a platform to organise film premieres and festivals. Some of the notable events that have been held here include the sell-out runs of Tan Pin Pin’s landmark documentary Singapore GaGa in 2005, the 2009 Italian Film Festival and the annual Singapore Sun Festival.
