Jerusalem Cinematheque

.
Welcome to Jerusalem's wonderful Cinematheque.

While you wait outside one of the screening halls for your film to begin, have a seat on the plush chairs all in a row.

Or sip a coffee in the corridor.

Each table has a different scene from a famous old movie.

Or stand outside on the patio by the row of flags and watch the Old City wall turn golden in the setting sun light
From Mt. Zion you can see just how big the red tile roofed Cinematheque is.
The green is the Valley of Hinnom.
Behind, to the west, is new Jerusalem.
.
See a historic photo of the building at the website, long before the Cinematheque renovated and moved in in 1981.

Very classy! It's good to see something pleasant and enjoyable happening in or near the Valley of Hinnom, considering its ancient history.

This is a fantastic place! I am not sure those seat can be considered a bench, but I'll take the risk!

The Jerusalem Cinematheque is an attractive place to watch a movie, beautiful the landscape from Mt. Zion.

From the roof you showed in the picture, it looks like a huge cinemateque! How many theaters does it have, Dina?

I think the biggest cinemateque in Bandung has 12 theaters in it. I might have to check it again though. I haven't been to the movie for quite a while.
