Another sad story from Malaysia, the Odeon in Penang was closed on April 30, 2001 and is slowly deteriorating. With the absence of moviegoers, rodents have become the central attraction of this theater. S.O.S.

Good news is the Odeon has re-opened as the Veenai Odeon, screening Tamil films.

Hi there —

As should be apparent from a viewing of my blog’s “Penang Cinemas: Past and Present (Photo-Essay)”, Penang’s Odeon Theatre is back in operation (albeit as the Veenai Odeon). Also, if memory serves me back, it recommenced operations in January 2002 by presenting “The Touch” starring Michelle Yeoh, Ben Chaplin and Richard Roxburgh.

Correction: the description says “Bollywood films”, but the movies playing in the photograph are both Tamil, as is the signage.
