An impressive architectural accomplishment. This movie theater was constructed in the late 19th-century. The theater initially was a ballroom part of a hotel. At that time it was one of the most beautiful ballrooms in the country. After interests changed the building was converted to an entertainment center with a restaurant, night club, shops and the ballroom being converted into a cinema.
After people stayed at home more often to watch films on their own televisions. The cinema visitors declined drastically. It later converted into an art cinema to attract a different crowd. Avant-garde and rare foreign or feature films were played. Never the less the cinema started to struggle financially. Probably because of the movie tickets being too cheap. Eventually, it had to close. The last movie was played over a century ago. The building never received a new purpose.
