Singapore has a long tradition of movie making, although it has seen its fair share of ups and downs. Originally, a lot of movies were screened for the sizable immigrant population. Cantonese opera for Chinese immigrants that evolved to movies, Indian movies for Indian immigrants, Malay language movies. The first public screening was in 1902, followed by a 'golden period' when several cinemas opened. During the WWII Japanese occupation, they were mostly used for screening propaganda films; how the Japanese were striving for 'an Asia for Asians'. Today the dominant players in this business are the Shaw Brothers and Cathay Organization.
