The Siam Theatre has been burned down…
…reports WiseKai in his excellent blog.
I went there last year on a 10 hour stop over in Bangkok on the way from Phnom Penh to Germany to see my first real movie in a cinema in more than six months. (Most of the cinemas in Phnom Penh are closed, the two that remain show Thai and Korean ghost movies from DVDs…)
It was the best way I could think of to make use of that stop-over.
It was great.
I almost missed my plane.
