Art Deco London: The Rio Cinema by Night. Matte & Giclee Prints
Art Deco London: The Rio Cinema by Night. Illustrated Architecture Print.
Rio cinema was designed by the cult architect FE Bromige in 1937. Till today the facade remains relatively unchanged. I love the signage at the front- the font very typical of Art Deco.
Hackney citizen: Despite, or perhaps because of, its unusual façade, the Rio sits surprisingly well amongst the mish-mash of styles on Kingsland High Street. The curved chrome door handles catch the eye, evoking 50s sci-fi classics like The Day the Earth Stood Still, rather than the modern titles.
Dalston’s local community continues to be well represented by the Rio. London’s Turkish film festival began here. The Cinema looks quite unnassuming during the day, but when lit up at night it turns into something really special.
*This interpretation is before the recent renovations, when the walls were still a bit old and gritty :)*
