movie theaters in downtown, Seoul.

Piccadilly Theater - since 1960


Myung Bo Arthall - since 1957

Hollywood Cinema - since 1969
.
A few days ago, I went downtown and strolled along the Chungmuro and Jongno 3-ga street. There located several famous but old theaters. I sketched the buildings remembering the modern history of Seoul.
The top one was reconstructed at the present site. The middle one was remodelled into a multiple art performance complex building. The bottom is well preserved with original structure and is now being used for old people from a year ago.

저의 20년 전의 시간을 추억하게 합니다.
자주 영화보러 다녔던 기억이 나네요.. 지금의 남편이랑.

형태는 변했어도 장소의 흔적이 그대로라면 살아있는 소재같아요... 기록을 남긴다는 의미보다도 그 시대의 주인공으로 되살아나서 같이 변해간다는 느낌이 생생하니까요. 사대문 안의 도심이 바로 그렇습니다.

Not sure where to post this but I wanted to ask if anyone has heard of National Clicks?

Can someone help me find it?

Overheard some co-workers talking about it all week but didn't have time to ask so I thought I would post it here to see if someone could help me out.

Seems to be getting alot of buzz right now.

Thanks
