In the last couple of weeks, this blog has been preoccupied with the activities of Davy Chou and the Kon Khmer Koun Khmer group due to their great exhibition and retrospective Golden Reawakening on the Golden Age of Khmer cinema. That is about to end, but not before reporting on the final activity: a small exhibition on the 30 old cinemas of Phnom Penh, which are sadly closed with the exception of the once-beautiful Cine Lux.

The show has some fifty photos of what has become out of the old buildings: restaurants, shops, garages, even a gasoline station. Some still show traces of their former glory, while others have turned into non-descript shop houses.

If you are in Phnom Penh check out the show at Sasa Gallery (7 Street 360 near Baitong Restaurant and opposite the Elementary Campus of the International School of Phnom Penh), on until November 18th.
