A Myanmar delegation led by Union Minister for Information Dr. Pe Myint yesterday visited Heyri Art Valley and CJ- CGV Company in Seoul, Republic of Korea.
In the morning, the delegation went to Heyri Art Valley and studied the Museum of Modern History of Korea.
Heyri Art Valley covering 495,868 square metres was created in 1998 by artistes, writers, painters, local and foreign architects.
It is home to many galleries, museums, small theaters, concert halls, bookstores, art shops, restaurants and guest houses.
In the afternoon, the delegation visited CJ- CEV Company where officials explained about the company being the largest multiplex cinema chain in Republic of Korea, operating over 1,000 screens at 151 cinemas in the country.
It is also the fifth largest multiplex cinema chain in the world, operating over 4,000 screens in 463 cinemas all over the world, including the US, China, Russia, Turkey, Viet Nam, Myanmar and Indonesia. Establishing such cinemas plays an important role in the development of Korean film industry and is currently transforming from Multiplex to Cultureplex, according to the company’s officials.
In order to increase customers, technically innovative creative services are prepared in advance and the long term aim is to have robots conducting cleaning works in the cinema and to become a Smart Cinema. CJ-CEV also has a vision to construct some 10,000 smart cinemas by 2020 in 11 countries including Myanmar. Officials explained their wish on continuing the discussion to become a bridge in transferring the art of the movie to teenagers in Myanmar for development of Myanmar film industry by conducting trainings. The Union Minister and party discussed and raised questions in return.
