The Asian Film Archive was founded in January 2005 as a non-profit organisation to preserve the rich film heritage of Singapore and Asian Cinema, to encourage scholarly research on film, and to promote a wider critical appreciation of this art form. AFA runs regular film programs at the Oldham Theatre, located at the National Archives of Singapore building along Canning Rise. The 132-seat cinema is equipped to exhibit films from 4K digital projection to traditional 35mm.

Oldham Theatre, Singapore

Guests enter through a striking 20m passageway lined with orange arches, reminiscent of the Fushimi Inari Shrine in Kyoto, into an intimate lounge where one can experience creative new cocktails or choose from the venue’s extensive sake list. A dramatic 2.5m tall one-of-a-kind Japanese “bell,” which presides above a traditional Japanese foot bridge, provides a focal point for the main dining room, which is complemented by soaring high ceilings, an oversized sushi bar and a private dining room at the mezzanine. KOMA will present a next level dining experience where guests can enjoy great food and conversation in a dramatic, unique setting created by the world renowned design firm Rockwell Group.
