Cinema 1 - Vacancy
(NC16 - brief nudity & coarse language) (82 minutes)

This riveting thriller features Luke Wilson and Kate Beckinsale as a  couple whose car breaks down, stranding them at a very dangerous  hotel. Director Nimrod Antal carefully builds the suspense as the  film gradually leads to horror when the hotel turns out to be a snuff  film operation, with cameras everywhere and lots of truly horrific  videos of past murders (shot in the same room) lying atop the TV set.  The couple needs to think fast before they become the next victims.



Cinema 2 - Gone Shopping
(NC16 - some coarse language) (100 minutes)

GONE SHOPPING is a darkly comical character study of three  individuals who escape to various shopping centers in search of a  better life. Leading the repertoire is Clara (Kym Ng), a tragically  romantic 40-year-old 'tai tai' (wealthy lady of leisure) who goes to  the shopping center in search of affection, followed by Renu (Sonya  Nair), a feisty 8-year-old girl who goes to the shopping center in  search of independence and finally Aaron (Aaron Kao), an angst ridden  23-year-old 'Gen-Y' boy who goes to the shopping center in search of  his manhood. Unfolding over three days, this motley crew will lead  audiences through a journey of love, loss and liberation in the heart  of Singapore where they find that their dreams can be bought and  broken. In the midst of it all, they will also cross paths with  other 'creatures' of the shopping centres, each of them with their  own strange retail tales.
