Cinema La Palace in Tunis/Tunisia

Cinema La Palace is located on Avenue Habib Bourguiba, the central thoroughfare of Tunis, and the historical political and economic heart of Tunisia. The hotel Rossini Palace openend in 1902 and restored in 2002. Paul Baron was the architect of this art noveau building. It is still standing, not used as a hotel anymore, but the cinema is working.
Originally here was as a theater for the Italian community in Tunisia - Le théâtre Italien is written on the postcard. Later a cinema was opened.
On wikipedia you can read, cinema was opened in the 1920s. But this postcard is dated on 7 May 1916 (not stamped) and already shows a cinema.
