New movie studio dedicated

A modern new movie studio and sound stage that will allow the Republic of Korea Office of Public Information to turn out better documentary, educational and information-type films, was dedicated today in Seoul. 23 July 1958. The new studio, a two-story structure 140 feet long by 40 feet wide was built with the help of the UNKRA, which furnished materials valued at $50,000 as a special project in the $147 million United Nations programme of economic assistance to the Republic of Korea. Earlier, in 1955, UNKRA provided OPI with $50,000 worth of motion picture equipment consisting of a 35 mm Mitchell camera with blimp, a 35 mm sound recording channel and a large amount of studio lighting and accessories, all of which have been in constant use since delivery.
