A look back at Baghdad moviegoing

posted by Michael Zoldessy on December 29, 2008 at 7:45 am

A piece in the Kansas City Star recounts one man’s memories of going to the movies in Baghdad.

Husham al-Kanani practically grew up in a Baghdad movie theater, watching films at the cinema his father managed.

Al-Kanani relives that time only in brief moments. He walks into the few remaining Baghdad movie theaters, buys a ticket and imagines the nonstop showings when the city’s cinema scene thrived.
