Having travelled far and wide in search of Japanese cinemas both old and new, tiny and gigantic, photographer Satoshi Chuma finally released his 'Movie Theaters' photo book last year. The National Film Centre now exhibits around 100 shots from this fascinating piece of architectural and cultural history, compiled over a period of seven years. In addition to Chuma's photos, which cover both the insides and outsides of some of Japan's most beautiful cinemas, the exhibition also includes pieces from the Centre's own collection – among them rare shots of pre-war theatres.
