Once wildly popular, Thailand’s standalone cinemas
have been replaced by the shopping-mall multiplex.
For ten years, Philip Jablon travelled across the country
recording the relics, ruins and romance of this lost cinematic
culture. With an introduction by Kong Rithdee and featuring
over 50 of the most compelling standalones together with vintage
photographs and an exceptional selection of hand-painted
movie posters, Thailand’s Movie Theatres captures an irreplaceable
slice of social, cultural and movie history.

“Philip Jablon has done miracles here. The temples of lights,
the ships of dreams, are revived. We have forgotten the beautiful rituals
involving cinema, all the ingredients that made every film special.
This book is an emotional journey to keep.”
~ Apichatpong Weerasethakul, filmmaker
(Palme d’Or winner for Uncle Boonmee who can Recall his Past Lives)

“Philip Jablon’s definitive look back at the Thai movie palaces of
the past is a masterful work of cultural archaeology – a testament
to the rapidly changing evolution of visual story-telling.”
~ Newton Thomas Sigel, American Society of
Cinematographers (ASC)
