July 2008 Theme Day: Cinema Safe

Have you ever seen the pirated DVD produced by the 'not-so-clever' people and recorded by the camcoder or cellular camera? If so, you will understand why Cinema XXI put this 'no recording devices of any kind are allowed' sign in the front of theater main gate. But oh, this small sign is not enough, so that they have to explain why it has to be like that in separated banner, in Indonesian language (bahasa Indonesia) ;-). And yes, you are not allowed to come in to the theater if you have weapon with you. I really don't know if they've ever found people with weapon in the theater.

We're blogging the same city, Kang Harry, our beloved Bandung. Sebagai pendatang baru di dunia city daily photo blog, saya ingin memperkenalkan diri. Mudah-mudahan kehadiran blog saya dapat melengkapi blog Kang Harry dan Kang Bunjamin yang sudah sudah hadir lebih dulu.

Kalau boleh kritik sedikit, foto ini kurang memperlihatkan tanda "Dilarang" atau "No"-nya, Kang (sesuai tema).

Salam hormat.

can't you even take your cellular phone inside the theater?

Kim said...

Harry, It never would have occured to me that people would try to pirate films in this setting. Unbelievable. And as to the weapons, perhaps someone might become overly involved int he action and whip out their concealed weapon and shoot or stab the screen actor ;^). Great post for our theme day!

It is unbelievable this sign would be needed. Nice choice.

Kelly said...

Very interesting shot!

Harry Makertia said...

@Eki: thanks Eki for your comment. Saya suka sekali dengan blog anda. Just "Wow!".

@amor: just you can't, Amor! But anyway, I think everybody just bring their cell inside the theater ;-).

@Kim: in Indonesia, nothing is impossible! But regarding the weapon, I think they are exaggerating :-).

@babooshka and @kelly: thanks for visiting my blog!

We have similar signs here in Australia, Harry. We also have similar carpet - the more colourful the better.

A good choice of sign for this Theme Day.

Uma por Dia said...

They never thought about a sign like that here!
Too funny!!
Happy day :)

Keropok Man said...

Yes, cinemas has the most "no" posters before you go in!

Happy Theme Day!

That's a serious issue and good to have such a sign. Cellphone must be off even it's not for the recording, don't you think?
