The Cathay Cinema, Singapore

The Cathay formerly known as the Cathay Building opened in 1939. Cathay was the country's first air-conditioned cinema and the first skyscraper, the tallest in Southeast Asia during that time. Today its front facade is gazetted as a national monument preserving its distinct art deco influence. The rest of the building behind this original facade is completely new.
