Old gateway II: Malay Film Productions

No 8, Jalan Ampas -- gateway to celluloid days in Singapore.  Established in 1937 by the Shaw Brothers, the studio saw its heydays in the 50s. The studio was closed in 1967. Read this blog for full details:
Part of the informative panel on the old
 studio (by URA) near the gate.
I ONLY came to know of this studio's existence when I took up taichi with the Singapore Tai Chi Association at Balestier Road. My teacher (I think he is in his 70s at least) who lives in Whampoa, told me about the studio. I had earlier wrote about a few old gateways (to memories) in Singapore -- so here's an addition.
