A wedding in a 1970s cinema? Who would have thought, but that was exactly what happened at Ganesh & Peiying’s wedding. When I first met Peiying, she told me about this unusual idea of having her wedding at a old cinema at Golden Mile Tower. My memory of Golden Mile was back in my uni days making overnight bus trips back to my hometown in Penang. I didn’t know that such a place actually existed so much so that I simply had to see it with my own eyes. So, I made a trip together with Ganesh and Jessica (Wedrock Weddings) and there it was – a 1970s cinema currently managed by the wonderful folks at The Projector. My first thought was I could make a Cinema Paradiso with this wedding, one of my very early reference films when I was studying cinematography.
