I didn't get much info on this one, only that the owner still lives in town - a fact which contrasts to the other theaters I've come across in Laos, whose owners all bolted from the country as soon as the communists took power in 1975. It closed down in the mid-80's
As I crept around the perimeter, trying to find a crack to get a peak inside, some kids rode by on bikes. One of them said to me "Yo dude, don't you know that joints haunted?" To which I replied, "I ain't scared of no ghost."
For those of you who think I'm trying to pass an old barn off as an old theater, check out the screen; barely visible through the crack in the door.
