This is supposed to be the building that Edward Hopper depicted in his 1936 cityscape painting “The Circle Theater”. https://www.wikiart.org/en/edward-hopper/the-circle-theatre

According to Google, the theatre is now closed. As I couldn’t find anything online about its programme, this seems to be true.

Mannheim having been founded in 1607, there’s nothing medieval there… The Cineplex name is from 1996, but the cinema is actually older (see https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q34380020 )

The photo of the proscenium seems to be of another theatre, the “Park Theatre” in Fulton Street, Brooklyn (known as “Shubert Theatre” or “Shubert Park Theatre” from 1905 to Dec 1907), according to https://books.google.de/books?id=X8GqBndVPZYC&pg=PA282

Sold at £1: A campaign to reopen the derelict Burnley Empire Theatre has taken a major step forward, after the building was sold to a group which has been trying to save it.

At http://www.arthurlloyd.co.uk/WeymouthTheatres.htm#pav the history is more detailed. The 1908 theatre depicted was destroyed by a fire in 1954. Another theatre was built on the site (1958-1960) and opened in 1960.

According to “The Theatres Trust Guide to British Theatres 1750-1950”, it was demolished in 1958.

Seems to have been replaced by an (comparably ugly) multiplex cinema “Megarama Fes”. http://rol-benzaken.centerblog.net/2894-cinema-empire-a-fes

I guess this is what http://www.allekinos.com/FLOERSHEIMGloria.htm lists as “Gloria” (converted to a beverage market) at Hospitalstrasse 4-6 in Flörsheim.

The cinema (a back building) has been demolished in 2017, see https://www.heidelberg24.de/heidelberg/heidelberg-altstadt-fotos-lux-harmonie-kino-wird-abgerissen-8583839.html

The part on the photo with the entrance (a listed old house called “Wormser Hof”) was not demolished, though.

AndreasP commented about Blue Movie Kino Centre on Mar 15, 2018 at 11:36 am

The history of this building is actually more interesting than its last name and the eerie Google image may promise. It was opened as “Kamera am Ring”, where in addition to commercial fare the first screenings of the communal cinema were shown in the 1960s (which would later become “Cinema Quadrat” at another location). The “Kamera am Ring” was renamed “Royal” and became an adult cinema in the early 1970s. In 1981 it was renamed “Blue Movie Kino Centre”. It closed for good in 2009, the foyer is now a gambling arcade.
