I knew the building but never noticed it was a theater.

surprenant comme theatre. Le parapluie c'est à cause de la pluie où de la chaleur ?

Surprising as theater. The umbrella is due to rain or heat?

@sidney - i'm not sure really if they still run movies here, but i believe this theater was very popular during the 80s

Luneta theater no longer run movies. The bldg. on the other end of the old theater was Luneta Hotel. It was once a fabiolous bldg as well. Very old but nice hotel. Unfortunately sinara na sya. I remember Chuck Norris filmed there and accross the street. They used the National Library and made it to be the US Embassy in Saigon. It was for the film Missing in Action

I love that theater. Brings back good memories. My parents always took us there when the mall theaters are too crowded. We used to go there in the 80's. Very clean and classy. I also remember eating at that little Chinese restaurant(can't remember the name) right next to it after watching a movie. They serve authentic chinese dishes and not the usual Chinese fast food fare.
