Batalha Big Room

To end our series on the Batalha, here is the main theater in its now deactivated state. Badly needing a clean-up, fresh paint and the removal of some of the 80s improvements, it’s nonetheless a beautiful space designed with the care and flow peculiar to a certain time in Modernism. The proscenium was also removed at some point as you can see from the period photos on the link below.

One day the movies might come back downtown (along with inhabitants other than tourists). Meanwhwile, many thanks to our friends in Cine-Batalha for organizing the tour!
