China's first cin­ema that shows films in Burmese opened in Ruili, South­west China's Yun­nan prov­ince, on Satur­day, ac­cord­ing to a report in China Daily .

Named Bao Bo Hall in Chi­nese – translit­er­ated from the word "broth­er­hood" in Burmese, the ded­i­cated screen­ing room is in a 1,500-squareme­ter new cin­ema built with an in­vest­ment of 12 mil­lion yuan ($1.78 mil­lion). Films to be shown in the hall will be dubbed and sub­ti­tled in Burmese.

A ma­jor bor­der cross­ing be­tween China and Myan­mar, Ruili is now home to ap­prox­i­mately 60,000 Burmese peo­ple, ac­count­ing for about one-third of its pop­u­la­tion.
