This cinema was erected in a remarkably short time. It consists of a foyer/waiting room on the ground floor with below it a cellar for the services and above it the auditorium, which faces along the diagonal of the square plan. The presence of a fly tower and an orchestra pit insisted on by the proprietors reveals some uncertainty on their part as to the future of the cinema in general. The facade shows that the architect knew better.
