Art- Iran was very culturally advanced before the revolution-Art seen as tradition mixing with modern (i.e. Persian caligraphy and European tools and techniques)- Art historians call the work "groundbreaking"

Movies- Iran has a rich history in performing arts- before film there were special forms of plays, puppet shows, etc-Movies were initially a luxury only for the monarchy and royal court-huge spike in theaters and the movie business in 50’s and 60’s, though more traditional families abstained from the cinema-In Early 1930's there were roughly fifteen theatres in Tehran and eleven in other provinces. By 1978 numbers hit 109 in the national capital and 318 in various Iranian cities.
