Kino in Lwiw/Ukraine

This postcard was printed in Kraków in 1916 and sent with military mail in the same year.
You can see on this postcard only a sign "Kino" on the left building. This house was on Academic Square 5 in Lemberg, now Shevchenko Avenue No. 28 in Lviv and is still standing. And there has been a Cinema for nearly 100 years.

First cinema Corso was founded in 1912 by engineer Karol Zygmunt Richtmann in his own home on  Academic Square, 5. In 1912, the owners of the cinema became the entrepreneurs Herman Opat and Ludwik Kuchar. In the 1920's, a reconstruction project developed by architect-engineer V. Litvinovich expanded the auditorium. In 1926 the cinema was called Warsaw, in the same year its name was changed to Rokoko.

In 1928-1938 - the cinema was called Pan and had 246 seats for spectators. After August 1938, the cinema operated under the name Rialto, which remained until the end of the German occupation (1944). The project was designed by architect-architect Adam Mściwujewski. Made in 1930s styling, it consisted of a light box 4.50 m wide for the cinema repertoire and neon signage. In 1936, the movie theater was headed by Maria Majewska and the owners were Leon and Celina Brenner and Helena Lippel.

After the Second World War cinemas were restored immediately, the cinema was organized in August 1944 with the name Pioneer and in 1950 it was renamed Georges Cinema. In the early 1990's, it was named after Taras Shevchenko.
Since 2012, the Grushevsky Cinema & Jazz restaurant has been located here.

I was delighted to find this information with good pictures here.
