About the venue

We've chosen the Cathay Building to host Sleepless in Singapore because of its parallel historical significance in combining technology and entertainment.

Cathay Building was most known for its air-conditioned theatre known as the Cathay Cinema, then a technological marvel and the first to be built in Singapore. Cathay Building was the first skyscraper in Singapore and tallest building in Southeast Asia at that time. Notably, the original façade of Cathay Building has been designated as a National Monument.

Projector X: Picturehouse has refurbished the interior to reflect the retro-modern aesthetics of cosmopolitan Singapore.
