“After nearly 10 years of documenting the vanishing stand-alone movie theaters in Southeast Asia, I’d like to invite the public into my world, to experience exactly what it is that I experience when doing this work.”
Philip Jablon is a cultural researcher and photographer based in Chiang Mai, Thailand. He has been documenting the stand-alone movie theatres of Southeast Asia as part of his Southeast Asia Movie Theater Project since 2009. Passionate about raising awareness of these buildings and the need to preserve them, he’s launched a crowdfunding project to make a feature length film about his documentation of old theatres in Southeast Asia.
