This cinema was build in 1933 that is also the year King kong was released in cinema. The walls of the cinema room had a lot of details with paintings on the side and clouds painted on the ceiling to give it and extra touch. In the 50s, the interior was sober and tight redecorated; you can still witness a crown above the projection. Due to the rise of television the cinema visits decreased. They try to put a sex cinema, but after some time even that coudn’t help it to close in 1982. After that a casino was also appointed to which was closed in mid-90s. After that the building was empty and the pigeons took up residence … In 2009 the building was squatted, where activists demanded protection for the building. They were expelled fast … and in 2011 the building was temporarily on sale for 850,000 euros … At the moment the owner doesn’t want to sell and a tax has to be paid for leaving this building abandoned. The city wants to give it a new destination. This cinema/theatre has one of the best secret entrance I did. It takes creativity to get into this one but is really worth it.
