‘Talentime’ back in cinemas
11 Aug – Primeworks Studios and a group of cinema operators are coming together to honour the memory of the late film director Yasmin Ahmad by organising a re-screening of her latest movie "Talentime" on 13 August 2009 onwards, for a limited time only. The screening will be held across various cinemas nationwide and the organisers have pledged to donate RM1 to an undisclosed charity organisation for every movie ticket sold.
"Yasmin Ahmad was an icon of our film industry who will be sorely missed, and this is our way of honouring her memory and allowing viewers to enjoy her work on the big screen once again," said Dato’ Sri Farid Ridzuan, Media Prima Berhad’s Group CEO Television Networks. "Those who missed it will now have a chance to catch it, while those who have watched it before are welcome to come along again to join us in remembering her while contributing to charity."
"Talentime" will screen at:
- GSC Cinemas in Mid Valley Megamall (KL), Queensbay Mall (Penang), Sunway Carnival (Prai), Dataran Pahlawan (Malacca), Alamanda (Putrajaya);
- TGV Cinemas in KLCC (KL), Cheras Selatan (KL), 1 Utama (PJ), Bukit Tinggi (Klang), Bukit Raja (Klang), Tebrau City (Johor);
- MBO Cinemas in Ampang (Selangor), Batu Pahat Mall (Johor), MBO Kluang (Johor), MBO Skudai (Johor);
- Big Cinemas Lotus Five Star in Taiping (Perak), Teruntum (Kuantan), Riverside (Kuching), Alor Setar (Kedah);
- Independent Cinemas in Growball (Kota Kinabalu) and The Mall (Brunei).
Released earlier this year in March, "Talentime" follows a group of students and teachers as they prepare for a talent contest in a school. Through the course of rehearsals and preparations, tragedy and emotions blend together and raise questions of faith, race, love and life.

Yay! Come and watch Talentime, the late Yasmin Ahmad’s recent movie which will be showing in a few cinemas for a limited time.
I watched this movie at a media event and it was an awesomely heartwarming movie. Paired with a really good soundtrack, this is one movie that is defiantly a keeper for your DVD collection.
