November 16, 2011

Church-run Macau Cinema has become the first local movie theatre in the former Portuguese colony to be able to show 3D digital movies. “Watching movies is a favorite pastime for most young people,” said Lio Koc-chong, vice-director of the diocesan Social Communications Center, which manages the movie theatre.
