The Tipanet Theater - Chiang Man, Thailand

The Tipanet Theater was on Tipanet Road, not far from the Wulai area of town. It was the last operating single-screen theater in Chiang Mai before it met the wrecking ball in 2008. Prior to its demise it was owned by the Vista Group, which also ran the Chaoern Meaung Theater and the Chang Peuak Theater, formerly known as the Nakorn Chiang Mai. Vista's sole remaining theater venture is a 7 screen multiplex atop Central Gad Suan Gaew shopping mall - my home away from home in Chiang Mai.


The Tippanetr circa 1990.
