Cine Marivaux

The Cine Marivaux in Luxembourg City was opened on 15th March 1928. Designed by architect Jean Warken, seating was provided for 390 in the orchestra, 190 in the balcony and 120 in the 2nd balcony, with the projection box located at the rear of the 2nd balcony. It was modernised in October 1939 to the plans of architect Arthur Thill, and the seating capacity was increased to 750.

The Cine Marivaux was the first cinema in Luxembourg to be equipped with CinemaScope, when Richard Burton in “The Robe” played in April 1954. It closed as a cinema on 1st August 1997 with “Con Air”. It seemed to be in use for some purpose and, from the exterior anyhow, had retained most of the features of cinema use, including the paybox and signs.

The Cine Marivaux was demolished in March 2008.

Unfortunately this cinema doesn’t exist anymore, it was torn down last year… a great loss for the Luxembourgish cinema community!

Sorry to hear the Marivaux has gone, glad I took the photos shown at the Flickr site above.
