SG50 film '7 Letters' gets theatrical release

If you've been wanting to catch the much-talked about movie '7 Letters' but did not manage to get your hands on the tickets during its opening premiere or extra screenings at the National Museum this weekend, you can now go to the cinemas.

The anthology of seven short films made by seven of Singapore's most prominent film-makers like Royston Tan, Eric Khoo, Tan Pin Pin, Jack Neo, Boo Junfeng, Kelvin Tong and K Rajagopal, will be released theatrically in seven Golden Village (GV) cinemas for one week from 20 to 26 August 2015.

Ticket sales start 5 August. Normal prices to the screenings apply, and all proceeds will go towards the movie's beneficiaries.

The movie will be screened at GV Suntec City, VivoCity, Plaza Singapura, Tampines, Jurong Point, Bishan and Yishun cineplexes.

There had been much public interest to see film, a project to celebrate Singapore's 50th birthday, ever since it played to critical praise when it premiered at the Capitol Theatre on 24 July. Tickets for all three showings that weekend were snapped up within two hours of their release.

Tickets for its three additional screenings at National Museum of Singapore’s Gallery Theatre over the Jubilee Weekend were fully taken up within three hours last Saturday.

"We have received so many calls and requests for '7 Letters to be shown in more theatres so that more people can watch it. The overwhelming support towards this film is very encouraging and humbling," said director Royston Tan.
