Photographer's Note

The "Oscar" ceremony took place last night, so it's good timing for this post.

It's the "Eden" cinema (yes, it accurately translates as "Cinema Paradiso"), the oldest in Tel Aviv.

It was built in 1914, during the times of the Turkish Empire here.

On the upper right corner the word "Eden", in Hebrew.
These days only the facade and the long wall on the side (seen in the shot) remain.

The cinema was finally closed in 1974. It's now an empty place.

The current owners, a big bank, have not decided what to do with it.

This area, the Neve Zedek neighbourhood, has become very trendy and expensive, so the old cinema structure will probably become some real estate project.

In the background, on the left - one of the typical buildings of this area.
