When Hollywood Met Singapore

Don’t miss our screening of the acclaimed 1979 film, Saint Jack, based on the book of the same name by American author Paul Theroux. The film was directed and shot in Singapore by Hollywood legend Peter Bogdanovich, starring Ben Gazzara. Due to its controversial subject matter, it was banned in the Lion City until 2006. The movie takes you down the streets of 1970s Singapore and follows fictional character Jack Flowers, an American "entrepreneur," on his many adventures, including his dream to open an up-market brothel, providing R&R to Vietnam soldiers.

Before the film, chat over a glass of wine and snacks and hear from Ben Slater, author of Kinda Hot, the book about the making of the movie. Learn the film’s back story, including how it was shot in secret under another name. 

Please note this is an adults-only event (18 years & over) due to the mature content of the film.

Limited Space Available.
