One thing I will require, however, is a back story of one kind or another. You know, to add a little flavor to the photos. It can be written in one of the following forms:
- a history of the theater (combined with broader local histories and events is also welcomed) .
- an interview with somebody who had a connection to the theater (past or present owners, employees, patrons, neighbors, vandals, etc)
- a personal experience or memory of the theater
- a travel-log
- something totally fictional, but nice to read (authenticity is appreciated, however).
Don't worry if you're not a native English speaker. In Southeast Asia most people are not native English speakers, but it's you locals who harbor most of the memories, so please don't let language hold you back. If you want, I will make modest grammatical corrections to your submission.
And spread the word! If you know anybody who might have some movie theater photos, encourage them to submit. They'll be doing a service for humanity.
All submissions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
We're looking forward to new perspectives from the fast fading world of Southeast Asia's stand-alone movie theaters.
