Before the Age of Multiplexes #25




The Diana Cinema, Cairo, Egypt, 1942.  Still in operation, still one screen.  Seats 1,570.

Kinda like the Cinerama Theatre in Havana, it's still a single screen cinema, although the curved one is long gone. Not quite as ornate, but it has a certain rustic charm. Too bad most of what they show is on video, not 35mm, but that's the way it goes.

I just noticed what was playing there - "Love Thy Neighbor" with Jack Benny and Fred Allen!
