Located at Shaw Tower, Shine Auditorium is a hidden gem nested within the CBD area. It has a seating capacity of 1,640.
Formerly a really old SHAW Theatre... The Shine Auditorium is refurbished with new plush seats, LED lighting, cameras, fantastic sound system and a good stage with all that is needed for drama & dance, a play, music events or even movie screenings. Being previously one of Singapore's best movie theatres has its perks. The layout and the interior architecture is created for the good sound portraying and sound proofing with plenty of space for people to move around.
I love this old theatre... though refurbished with better fixtures and more eco-friendly equipments, this place still bears the good old memories of my younger days. The entry to this theatre is mainly through the 2 service lifts whom bears a courteous sign " to patiently wait and hold the door for incoming passengers" which is one that I have not seen for a long time. Another entry or escape is by the carpark which i find a little dangerous as its round a bend and slope.
There is a toilet in the theatre itself and I find it nice, clean and there is around 10 cubicles to avoid queues. There is also speakers in the restroom in the theatre that allows you to know whats going on outside even when you are pampering yourself in the loo.
The ambiance and air-conditioning of the place is great, i find insufficient leg room for the seats however I love the railings along the seats that is both safe and helpful as a additional support. The location is pretty good... situated near to suntec city and the other end of Liang Seah street, food is easy to find, though you can always patronise the outlets at level 1, they have cafes, restaurants and even starbucks. Though the toilets at the other parts of the Shaw Building is old, they are clean and pretty well maintained, most importantly they have toilet paper in almost every cubicle though i'm shocked to find that only about 10-25% of the cubicles are seating ones.. the rest.. you have to squat...
Plenty of good food around the SHAW Centre.. My personal favourite for lunch will be the Roast Duck rice opposite the other side of the road near to Liang Seah Street... Its succulent yummy and juicy with a crispy skin.. Mmmmmm
