If you’re a film buff and a beach lover, you’ll want to pen down Sunset Cinema on your calendar. Think beach sunset, deck chairs, DJ-spun music, the aroma of food wafting from outdoor stalls, and award-winning feature films. “Sunset Cinema compliments our other open-air cinema event, Films at the Fort, which is a picnic-style event held at Fort Canning Park in August. Both are annual events, and allow audiences to have different outdoor cinema experiences within the year,” says event director Ben Williams, adding that this is Singapore’s first silent cinema event, with audio broadcast via wireless headphones. Tickets are priced at $29.80, and includes deck-chair seating and use of headphones. Gates open at 5pm; film screening starts at 7.30pm.

Sunset Cinema takes place at Sentosa’s Tanjong Beach, 5-14 May. For details, visit
