5. The Projector

The Projector has become an increasingly popular hangout among youth ever since people started sharing their experiences on TikTok. 

Almost like a hidden gem located in Golden Mile Tower, The Projector houses a retro photo booth and an Indie movie theatre. 

At the retro photo booth, you can get an aesthetically pleasing film photo strip for just $4. 

Do note that the photo booth only accepts new and old $1 coins so be sure to bring them along with you.

You can catch a movie at the Indie movie theatre right beside the retro photo booth too. Unlike your usual cineplex, you can also enjoy a classic film on the comforts of a beanbag.
