Wit’s End makes its debut in Singapore

The Press Club is working with The Arts House to secure concessionary rates (currently for senior citizens and students) to all its musicals, film screenings, exhibitions and other ticketed activities for our members.

Coming soon is the 1971 B-movie Wit’s End (aka G.I Executioner) which will be shown in Singapore for the first time at The Arts House from January 23 to 30, 2013. In conjunction, a photo exhibition will run from January 14 to 31; the film’s producer Marvin Farkas will launch his memoir on 26 January; and a photo trail will take place on 27 January.

Wit’s End was filmed in some locations very near The Arts House, becoming an unwitting documentary of places in Singapore that were long gone or changed beyond recognition. The film, which follows jaded American Marine and journalist Dave Dearborn as he chases down mobsters, prostitutes and a mysterious substance called “anti-matter”, features rare historic footages of places such as Clifford Pier; the Ellenborough Market, now Central Mall; the old Raffles Institution, now Raffles City mall; and one of only two public toilets that once stood in the middle of traffic, now the Clarke Quay area.

The concessionary rate for Press Club members is S$8 per ticket. You must produce a valid membership card at the box office when collecting your tickets.
