Orpheum Theatre 1930s | PrintRegular price €18,00
A hidden gem in Gzira designed in 1932 with an Art Nouveau style and Spanish features. It is such a delight to get the chance to experience its majestic beauty - the old traditional patterned flooring, the beautiful mural affreschi painted with such finesse that look like marble walls and the colourful panelled ceiling with the prestigious art work at the centre, painted in 1933 by Rafel Bonnici Cali.
This marvellous theatre was graced with the notable performances of world renowned artists, and later served as a cinema theatre, showing ‘Alexander the Great’ as its first movie, released in 1956.
One only hopes that one day it will be restored to its former glory!
