We all want to see any picture of the panel so please post on a site like flickr and link here!
Does anybody have a picture of the Zadkine panel placed over the sceen?
Please send to :
This page has a vintage picture of the faÃ§ade of the Metropole :
It now houses a Zara women’s appareal store. I think the facade is still gorgeous. Will post some photos (panorama) soon.
I stayed at the hotel in 2001, knowing that it had formerly this huge movie palace. The facade doesn’t look anymore like a former theater. I’d love to see vintage photos of exterior and especially interior!
A small correction to the name of the architect, it was Adrien Blomme. Blomme(1878-1940) had already done other work for the Belgian brewing family Wielemans-Ceuppens, who had financial interests in the earlier Hotel Metropole (which is still extant) and in the new Cinema.
From the very beginning, some of the basement function rooms of the Hotel were located under the cinema. The Zadkine panel has been reported to remain, invisible, on the premises but the public spaces of the interior retain no features whatever.
