I was walking around the streets of Marrakesh with My friend Thomas, when we incidentally came by these old movie posters hanging at the front of an even older building. And right away the movie geek in me though, there must be a movie theater behind these walls somewhere.
I found a small gate/door that led in to an alley, where I could see the old ticket booth, I snapped a few photos and all of a sudden this guy came from out of nowhere, it turned out that he was the old film carrier and that he still had access to the theater, which he kindly opened up for us.
As far as I understood – I don’t speak French (or Arabic at all, they have French as a second language in Morocco, because of the colonization) – the cinema was established in 1929 and had been open to the public until 2009, where it was shut down cause of bad circulation.
It’s a 7 RAW exposures HDR, made with Photomatrix, Photoshop and Topaz Adjust. it’s made from the balcony with a 12-24mm lens at 12mm.
