Did You Watch a Movie at Mayfair?

Y K Choong sent us this photo in October last year and it went on the the pile called “Must do site visit”.

Well this morning I actually got out to Jalan Theatre in Pasir Pinji to find that nobody 25 years old or less appeared to have ever heard of the place. However an aged Chinese gentleman in a little wooden shack pointed out the large square indoor badminton court building that stands on the theatre site today. This was opened in 2004.

So, with apologies to Choong, here is his photo of what I think was the concrete projection room of the otherwise wooden theatre.

Does anyone remember anything about the Mayfar Theatre which I understood from this morning’s conversation showed Chinese movies.

The Pasir Pinji Kindergarten

This cute picture is from Shuen Huey Foo, of Ipoh. Recognise this place?

The signboard in the background says “Taman Didekan Kanak2 Wesley, Pasir Pinji, Ipoh”.

I’m guessing this was probably in the early 1980s (could be wrong, though). Is this kindergarten still around? Was it another branch of the Wesley Kindergarten along Lahat Road?

You tell us 🙂 Perhaps, someone in this picture remembers his/her face and could tell us more?
