Long evening film - Review of Mingalar Diamond Cineplex, Mandalay, Myanmar
Mingalar Diamond Cineplex is situated on the fifth storey of Yadanarbon Market, which was one of the oldest stores in Mandalay and is now a commercial centre known as Diamond Plaza or Diamond Centres. There are 3 cinemas, each with five different hours from 10:00 to 21:30 or two different films distributed throughout the year.
Movies don't often vary per months. They are in English (because they are US/engl movies), and when I went to the film clock "Dracula Untold", there were no Myanmar caption. Cinemas are equipped with A/C, 2-D and 3-D films, 7.1 Doly Digital sound. It seems like it' s natural for people in Burma to take a call, chatter on their cell and speak to their buddies during the film.
The price is very low and starts from about 1500 kyats (1.5 USD) to 3000 kyats (3 USD). On the last line (for about 3000 Kyat) there are even twin beds for two! Beverages and refreshments are available outside the cinemas at very low cost (1 liter sodium hydroxide 300 karat (0.30 USD).
So, if you are in Mandalay and have nothing to do in the evenings (and have nothing to do in the evenings), go there and have some cheaper time.
