Burmese movie-going in 1954

Nice post on an interesting blog about Burmese cinema and movie-going in the 1950's. The author takes a very thoughtful approach that entwines the socio-political aspirations of post-colonial Southeast Asia and the film industry.

A few of the theaters mentioned in the old ads are still in operation, including the Bandula Cinema in Taunggyi.
