The Kino closes its doors
The Kinopanorama, the legendary Parisian hall consecrated to quality cinema, will close its doors after 80 years of showings. Following three years of discussion and negotiations, Gaumont sold the theater that, with its concave, 17-meter screen and a costly projection system, set generations of audiences dreaming. But the growing number of Multiplex, as well as limited audiences interested in seeing the original versions of films, put Kinopanorama´s bottom line in the red. Milos Forman´s Amadeus, in its uncut version, was chosen for the last screening.
Obviously, Kinopanorama could not close without a controversy, which has been further inflamed by the concrete possibility that this landmark may now become a trendy restaurant.
