Times change…

Times change…
press Z, please

Since the year of its foundation, in 1907, the Animatógrafo do Rossio started out as the most luxurious cinema hall in Lisbon, later became a children's theater room but in 1994 and until now has been showing peep shows, striptease shows and pornographic films.

But, if nothing inside is the same as before, on the facade many things remain the same.

More than a century later, it façade continues to leave no one indifferent for its elements of Art Nouveau, painted in green, that frame the three spans of the façade.

More discreet, but equally beautiful are the tile panels dedicated to the theme of electric light, with two female figures holding lamps

Many thanks for your visit, kind comments and favs

I'm not overly keen on the green ironwork, but the tiles depicting the lamp holders, are quite stunning! Beautifully captured.

My feeling is the tiles should be removed and restored and then put away safely until the building is renovated.

C'est vrai que cette magnifique façade est impressionnante et d'une extrême beauté. C'est dommage que son activité actuelle ne correspond pas à sa valeur et à son histoire.
Bon jeudi.

The characteristic facade is beautiful and with a not so heavy restoration it could return to its past splendor. The problem would be how to use the interior.

Ah yes times do change indeed. In most cases I think a change of a beautiful building like this into a strip club with porn is a backward step but where this is a need......

Keep safe. Herb

Une magnifique devanture à plusieurs vocations dont les peep shows et les films XXX.

Les vocations se suivent mais ne se ressemblent guère !

Herrlich, dass man diese Fassade so behalten hat Judite...im Haus kann sich verbergen was mag, so behält es seinen Stolz!
Manchmal fällt es mir leichter in meiner Muttersprache zu schreiben, wenn ich etwas ausdrücken möchte...aber der Übersetzter kann ja alles :))

Often it's good that times change, but sometimes it's not. I like these old-style movie theaters, I used to live close to one in Sacramento, CA (although one probably wouldn't think of "old-style" in connection with the USA) ;-)
