Rába in Győr/ Hungary


cinema Rába in Györ postcard

The city of Györ on the Rába River was badly damaged in World War II. After 1945 many new apartments were built. And cultural institutions were also important. In 1958 it was decided to build a cinema with 800 seats. It opened in 1962 with 830 seats.

The cinema was designed by Kálmán Lakatos and János HarmatiHere you can read all about the building's architecture and history. 

The cinema was closed in 2000, a modern multiplex opened in the city. The building was reopened to the public in 2001 as a concert hall for the Györ Philharmonic Orchestra. The building's name is now Richter Terem / Richter Hall. The name honors the city's musical son Hans Richter.

The postcard was sent in 1962. It shows the newly built cinema.  I miss the illuminated Rába sign on the building, as you can see in some old pictures. I think it came to the building after opening.

Köszönöm Zoltánnak ezt a képeslapot!
