Cinema Odeon (1927) was closed and put to sale some years ago. Its opening exibition: “The Merry Widow” by Erich von Stroheim. The Odeon is Lisbon’s last movie theatre from that glorious period. It has marvelous details: stage sculptures, Brazilian wood ceiling, balconies (two, and a suspending one), metallic facade, opening ceiling, ceiling lamp, etc.
During almost 70 years people went there to watch pictures from Capra, Browning, Lang, Hitchcock, Eisenstein, Boetticher, Ford, Whale, Leone, etc. There is the possibility of demolition, in spite of the existence of a group of people fighting for his preservation, as declared in the site above mentioned. We all hope that Lisbon’s mayor will stand for it!
