I stumbled over a curious collection of youtube videos that are nothing but loving pans over the front of the Shinsekai Kokusai Gekijo (Naniwa, Osaka). It's an old neighborhood theater, with Hollywood films running in the main theater and a screen for pink bills in the basement (naturally). This might be one of the last movie theaters out there where their billboards out front are all hand painted. Check it out:


It makes you wish you could watch youtube videos of Taisho Era Asakusa.
