4 Aug – "7 Letters" is getting additional screenings due to high demand. It is now set for a limited one-week release at GV cinemas later this month.
According to posts on the movie's official Facebook page, "7 Letters" will be screened at seven yet-to-be-announced Golden Village cinemas from 20 to 26 August.
Tickets will be available on GV website starting 5 August. Normal ticket prices apply and the proceeds will go to the seven beneficiaries chosen by the directors of the movie.
When the SG50 movie debuted at the newly renovated Capitol Theatre last month, the tickets for it was sold out within two hours on 1 July.
The tickets were not priced but purchasers were encouraged to donate to Alzheimer's Disease Association, Children-At-Risk Empowerment Association, Movement for the Intellectually Disabled of Singapore, PERTAPIS Senior Citizens Fellowship Home, Singapore Buddhist Lodge Welfare Foundation, Student Care Service, and Transient Workers Count Too.
Most recently, free tickets for the screenings at the National Museum of Singapore were all taken up in just three hours. Though additional screenings were opened up to cater to the overwhelming demand for the 8 to 10 August shows, many who lined up last Saturday still had to go home empty-handed.
"7 Letters" is an anthology directed by Boo Junfeng, Eric Khoo, K Rajagopal, Jack Neo, Tan Pin Pin, Royston Tan, and Kelvin Tong. It represents seven heartfelt 'love letters' to Singapore, capturing each of the directors' personal and poignant connection with the place they call home.
