Art Deco cinemas can be found all over the world and Mexico is no exception. During my recent visit Eddy House Meets The Pim Jacobs Trio - Close Enough For Us was able to admire a number of cinema buildings, both in Mexico City and in Puebla. Several of the cinemas are now used for other purposes, mainly shopping centres but at least one of those I visited is still used for theatrical performances.
I came across this building quite by chance after having visited the wonderful Museum of Popular Art at Revillagigedo 11, itself a great art deco building.
Built init was designed by the American architects, Drew and John Eberson. It was originally intended that the theatre should seat up to 6, people, in it had a capacity of 4, Inafter many years of neglect, it was given a full restoration part funded by the Disney Corporation.
Today it seats just under 3, The Follow Your Heart - Triumph - Follow Your Heart Coliseo Cinema in Puebla was another find. Built in about it is now a department store but the exterior is still intact and what an exterior it is, covered in chevrons, portholes, vertical windows and zig-zags.
Puebla is renowned for its Baroque style architecture and I did not expect to come across art deco here. The Coliseo was not the only example of the style that I found as I also came across a neglected but still elegant apartment block in Avenida 4 Poniente, close to the famous Uriate Talavera ceramics shop and factory. I have been unable to find any details of the architect or date of construction. And whilst on the subject of unexpected art deco, I also came upon a rather nice building Eddy House Meets The Pim Jacobs Trio - Close Enough For Us Oaxaca with clear deco influences including "rule of three decorative details on the facade and on the corner summits.
Eduardo once said of art deco in Mexico that "you can find it everywhere". He was right. No-one has ever been charged with organising the attack and there is much controversy about the way in which the investigation has been handled over the years. Some of this is reflected in the various monuments to those murdered such as the ironic murals in the Pasteur Subte metro station just around the corner from the AMIA building, one of which shows the hunt for justice represented by a blindfolded woman being led through a maze by a tortoise.
A pretty clear message I think. A couple of items that survived the blast intact are displayed in the lobby of the new AMIA building, including a stained glass window given to the community in to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Israel's independence and the 75th anniversary of the AMIA. It consists of nine poles, each 3. The pillars are placed on a large platform in the shape of a Magen David, complying with the Biblical requirement that "You must not make image or any likeness of anything that is in the heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters under the earth".
Directed by Marcos Carnevale, it features a wonderful central performance by Alejandra Manzo. The bombing is also referred to in a more recent Argentinian film, God's Slavedirected by Joel Novoa and made in The tour concluded with a look at several other monuments, including one to Holocaust rescuer Raoul Wallenberg and a visit to the small but interesting Jewish Museum at Libertad It holds temporary Eddy House Meets The Pim Jacobs Trio - Close Enough For Us and stages cultural activities as well as showing items from its permanent collection including paintings, textiles, religious objects and documents.
From the museum, visitors can enter the exquisite Libertad synagogue. Built inclose to the Teatro Colon, the synagogue is home to the Congregacion Israelita de la Republica de Argentina. It has a beautiful interior which includes a dome decorated in gold leaf pictured at the top of this postpink marble and beautiful stained glass windows. No comments:.
