CINEMA BATALHA 2: LITTLE DOME | Old Portuguese Stuff


Cupola Batalha

Cylindrical glass bricks in a plaster dome illuminate a public stair to the Sala Bébé.

The cinema was constructed in 1947 and here we start to see some of the stylistic and material elements which define it: rounded corners, elegant stair rails supported by copper (yes, copper!) b-shaped “posts”, terrazzo and wood flooring, and a general fluidity of architectural elements.
