Possibly A Great Vantage Point For A Tourism-centric Mural

Residents in the Belait district especially those in Seria have in the past year or so seen how an empty land adjacent to the Oil & Gas Discovery Centre (OGDC) slowly morphed into what it is today. Out of town friends have heard about the development of a certain “state of the art 3D cinema” but nothing more. Having ventured as close to the finished attraction as possible including a peek at the 24 lane bowling alley, I know it’s a matter of time before the long awaited entertainment hub becomes a reality. Two movie theatres, Cinema 1 and 2, occupy the left and right side (the two white exterior walls). The first thing that struck me was those walls need a shot of art — like a mural.

“A mural is any piece of artwork painted or applied directly on a wall, ceiling or other large permanent surface. A particularly distinguishing characteristic of mural painting is that the architectural elements of the given space are harmoniously incorporated into the picture.” — Wikipedia

The much anticipated new yet-to-open movie theatre and bowling centre in Seria.

One thought on “Possibly A Great Vantage Point For A Tourism-centric Mural

  1. No laughing stuff. If only they would. A mural this big will have lightfastness issues. Unless someone does it with the highest quality mosaic we often see on large museums round the world.


Be real. Let me know what you think ...
