Burmese Art Deco

In my down time, the mind wanders back to recent excursions. To the frenzied streets of Burma and those Art Deco picture houses that enhance what we pedestrians see. After the British had accepted their resign and before iron fists clamped down on the country, Classical Art Deco cinema halls were one of two architectural styles to proliferate. Here are a few for your viewing pleasure.


The Thwin Cinema - Yangon


The Tun Thiri Cinema - Pyay


The Kemarat Cinema - Kyang Tung


The Myoma Cinema - Pyin Oo Lwin


The Shwe Hintha Cinema - Bago


The Win Cinema - Tounggoo


The Yazuna Cinema - Pyin Oo Lwin
