Oh my goodness, this is so gorgeous! Thank you so much for your sharing, Mr Projectionist.Hey, I am not sure whether you know that the Trang Rama has just closed down since the end of last month. I just got this sorrowful news from a friend of mine yesterday. Was the Trang Rama the last stand-alone movie theater in Southern Thailand?
Dear Iris,The news you just imparted about the closing of the Trang Rama is making me want to regurgitate the fried rice I just ate all over my lap top. Indeed another sad day in Thai movie theater history.In answer to your query, I honestly cannot say for sure whether it was the last stand-alone in Thailand's south. I have only done a little bit of reconnaisance in southern Thailand. As far as I know the Trang Rama was owned by Coliseum - southern Thailand's sole distributor and largest exhibitor, headquartered down Hat Yai. Hopefully there are some more still in operation down there, so that when eventually I do get around to it I'll have something to photograph besides relics. Thanks for being the bearer of bad news.
