When I was a kid, I would watch movies in Cinema Vendome in Mar Mekhayel (Ashrafieh). I remember watching Flubber (Robin Williams, 1997) there.
I didn’t even know the building was being teared down till it was gone…
It was an old and decayed building but could have been given a face-lift.
I wonder what’s gonna be built there but hope it’s not one of those fugly high-rise buildings.
Enshallah “they” build something that suits Ashrafieh’s vintage architecture.
