Futurist cinema

What remains of the Futurist cinema

The Futurist Cinema was very popular and managed to retain its hold even after competition from the huge Paramount (Odeon) and Forum (ABC) opened which sometimes forced the Futurist into taking off-circuit films.

Not much of a future here these days. I can’t remember the films I’ve watched in the Futurist over the years, but I always loved the name. I’m sad to see it in such a bad shape. The font looks like Futura, very apt in an ironic way.
