"The Terminal" movie premieres at Changi Airport
By Yvonne Cheong, Channel NewsAsia

SINGAPORE : Steven Spielberg's latest movie "The Terminal" is inspired by a true story about a man who lived in an airport for over 16 years.

And what better place to premiere it in Singapore than at Changi Airport.

With movie posters and pop corn, it looks like a regular cinema, but with a view of the runway.

Some 160 people, who participated in contests held with the Today newspaper, Gold 90.5FM radio station and 8 days magazine, won for themselves tickets to the premiere of "The Terminal".

The venue is the sky lounge of Changi Airport's Terminal One - a first for the airport and excited movie buffs.

"That's something new as well, something good. Something unique that you don't have it everyday."

"Unexpected, and I think quite a new idea to have a movie screened in the terminal."

For others, the pre-movie tour of the airport was also a highlight.

"We know about the facilities in here now, he was thinking of bringing the children earlier the next time we come and visit because we're planning a holiday in December."

"You should have more such screening as well as tour going round so that people can get to know the airport better, anyway Changi Airport is what the first in the world."

The movie, starring Tom Hanks and Catherine Zeta-Jones, will also be screened for transit passengers, and will open in cinemas across Singapore on September 9.

For more on the man who inspired the movie, as well as insights into airports in Malaysia and Hong Kong, catch the special edition of Yours Truly Asia on Monday, at 8pm on Channel NewsAsia. - CNA
