More Blasts from the Past with Malum Nalu & Jim Dudgeon !

A whole generation in PNG has grown up without knowing the experience of watching movies in a cinema.

In the happy days of the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s, cinemas were commonplace all over the country.

Those of us who grew up in the roaring that memorable period will know the joy of watching films on the big screen.

Bruce Lee, James Bond, and those old black and white cowboy movies garnished with icecream, popcorn, and cotton candy are now becoming a fading memory like those venerable haus piksas (cinemas) once scattered all over the country.

These days, with the advance of television, video, VCDs, and the Internet, the movie projector has become as antiquated as the time honored typewriter.

Anyone who grew up in Lae in the pre Independence years of the 50s, 60s, and 70s will tell you about the Stewart, Huon, and Lae Theatres.
