The Last Single Screen Theater Seodaemun Art Hall Closes


The last film they showed was the classic 1948 film, The Bicycle Thief. A great tribute to cinema and the owner of the house took is personally.

“After the movie ended, Kim Eun-ju, the theater operator, had her head shaved before moviegoers and reporters packing the theater hall. Several volunteer theater workers cried and embraced Kim after most of her hair was gone, shouting, “Stop it! Stop it!”” (The Republic – Kim Eun-ju)

The theater is scheduled to become a hotel.
