every trip on a double-deck bus...is a learning trip by itself.
The kids enjoy the top-front seats, where they get a bird's eye view :)

nparks, pub, ura offers links to free local garden/parks/water-bodies/heritage. Endless funs.

reference other blogs to gather more ideas :wink:

Under the Banyan Tree - Open Air Cinema

Postby daisyt » Wed Aug 26, 2009 9:25 am

A programme of The National Museum Cinematheque, for the month of August and September, here are the film schedules. FREE *** Good for family outing, watch the film in open air and have bring along your picnic mat and food. Its just outside the museum, under the old big banyan tree.

Date : FRI 28 AUG 2009, 8:00pm
The Band Wagon
The Band Wagon marked the culmination of a series of near-autobiographical pictures Fred Astaire made for MGM following his return from premature retirement in the late '40s. Astaire plays Tony Hunter, a fading film star who decides to return to his former glory, the Broadway stage. His playwright-songwriter friends (Nanette Fabray and Oscar Levant) hook him up with Broadway's hottest director, Jeffrey Cordova (a nicely hammy Jack Buchanan), who proves that the "new" theater traditions can be an awkward fit with the old. Hunter also finds himself at odds with his prima ballerina leading lady (Cyd Charisse). Audiences will be treated to some quintessential MGM numbers: Astaire's solo ode "By Myself", the flashy arcade romp "A Shine on Your Shoes", Astaire and Charisse's romantic duet "Dancing in the Dark", the faux-German drinking song "I Love Louisa", the manic trio "Triplets" (with Astaire, Fabray, and Buchanan in matching baby outfits), the Mickey Spillane-esque "Girl Hunt Ballet", and the classic show-biz anthem "That's Entertainment". The Band Wagon is truly a classic backstage musical of its time.

Date : SAT 29 AUG 2009, 8:00pm
An American in Paris
A GI (Gene Kelly) stays in Paris after the war to become an artist, and has to choose between the patronage of a rich American woman (Nina Foch) or a French gamine (Leslie Caron) engaged to an older man. The plot is mostly an excuse for director Vincente Minnelli to pool his own extraordinary talent with those of choreographer-dancer-actor Kelly and the artists behind the screenplay, art direction, cinematography, and score, creating a rapturous musical not quite like anything else in cinema. The final section of the film comprises a breathtaking 17-minute-long breathtaking dance sequence that took a month to film. Songs include "'S Wonderful", "I Got Rhythm", and "Love Is Here to Stay".

For more details and September schedules, you can refer to the museum website. http://www.nationalmuseum.sg/nms/nms_ht ... ne_id=1518
