Things to come

Regular readers of the Southeast Asia Movie Theater Project may have given up hope that any new material will ever be produced. Strike that thought from your brains! While the grant/sponsorship route to action is dismally dry, the DIY method is taking shape nicely.

There are currently two photography books being edited together for those who enjoy this project. The closer of the two to completion will be entitled "The Last of Thailand's Stand-Alone Movie Theater: A glimpse into a vanishing form," or something to that effect. It should be completed by the end of July.

A second book - dedicated to Burma's stand-alones and the culture surrounding them - is also in the works, yet in need of much more content to make it worth producing. That means more expeditions will be needed. What say we let sales of the first book subsidize more production for the second?

In the meantime, I'll try to keep a stream of relevant and/or interesting material related to this niche subject matter on the boards. Feel free to send a note if you feel so inclined. I usually reply. 


  1. Please keep this up! Already the theatres along Burma's cinema row are starting to get torn down..

  2. Don't worry, my friend. This is merely a hiatus period. Burma is still very much on my agenda.
