WB100 Celebrating Every Story features photo spots, an interactive zone with life-size DCEU figures, and movie screenings at Southside.
You must already know about this event, if you’re a Warner Bros, DCEU, or classic animation fan.
Warner Brothers is celebrating their 100th birthday at Sentosa. From now till Nov 26, 2023, there are WB photo spots, exhibits, and an interactive zone at Siloso Beach. For those who have yet to watch some of the studio’s most memorable cinematic hits, such as Barbie and the first Harry Potter movie, Southside will also be hosting weekend movie screenings from Nov 17 to 26. (First come first served, limited seats!)
It’s a great treat for all Warner Brothers fans, beginning with how half of the interactive zone is devoted to DC comic history and DCEU characters—there are five life-size figures of Justice Leaguers. Even if you’re not into DC superheroes, Tom & Jerry are there. So are Fred Flintstone, Scooby Doo, the Jetsons, and of course, the Looney Tunes loonies.
In celebration of the recent Singapore-set Tom & Jerry series, there is even a huge inflatable of Tom enjoying a durian next to the interactive zone.
(Update Nov 16: Yikes! I didn’t know Jerry was originally there too. Half of the inflatable was stolen! Good grief!)
You know, I’m familiar with all the animated characters featured; they were the ones I watched and loved as a kid. But I’ve completely forgotten all of them are under the WB umbrella.
The same goes for all the memorable movies mentioned on the WB timeline display. Although I have HBO Go, I just don’t associate the Harry Potter Franchise with 300 or Gremlins or, goodness, my all-time favourite movie The Exorcist.
Seems like I’ve been a Warner Bros. fan since young, without me realising.
WB100 Central at Central Beach Bazaar
WB100 Celebrating Every Story is divided into three zones. The Central Beach Bazaar segment, named WB100 Central, features Looney Tunes photo backdrops and a Warner Brothers timeline.
