The Lao Chaleun Revisited - Savannakhet, Laos

The epic Lao Chaleun Cinema, in all its dilapidated elegance, is still standing. I didn't re-explore its innards this time round, fearing imminent collapse, but I did re-shoot the facade. Here are a couple of them.

Aside from being one of the more iconic theaters ever to be featured on this site, it also features prominently in the city of Savannakhet. One of the city's key landmarks; a 1930's tropical art deco masterpiece, palatial in size, with an inviting, carnival-like beauty.

For more photos and details, visit the original post of this theater from nearly 3 years ago.
