The neighbourhood´s cinema next door was demolished this summer. It was a former riding stable that was converted into a cinema in the 1950s. I used to go to sleep with the noisy chatter of people emerging from the movies at night, a very comforting sound.
Now it´s all to quiet.
The new owners of the lot want to build two large and exceedingly ugly appartment buildings. People are hoping that the investors won´t suceed with their plans and have filed a complaint with the board of works, so for now all work on the area is stalled and left in this state.
