Just revisited the Lux today. It recently reopened after a 5 year closure. It’s no longer a single screen theater but a multisal: the 1,000 seat auditorium has been split up in 3 theaters, the original three entrances in the basement have been shut and are plastered up and now has a bar in front of it. The rest of the lush marble is still intact and very much worth a visit. I took lotsa pictures.
The exterior, as well as the whole galleria is in scaffolding. Renovation to the gorgious arcade should be done in september.

Here is a photo I took of the Cinema Lux in 1990. The film being shown looks like it might be Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, here called “Ninja Turtles to the Rescue.”
