LUX Cinema [ABF-025]. In the 1920s and 1930s, cinema was booming. Transforming old theaters is no longer enough. A number of large halls are being built in the city center as well as smaller ones on the outskirts. In terms of architecture, the Art Deco style dominates the period. The proposed model incorporates these codes. It will be a neighborhood cinema for a large city as well as a cinema for a smaller city. This cinema is called the LUX but could also have been called the Rex or the Vox, a popular name at the time. Among the distinctive elements, we find an overhang on the facade, a marquise and a pediment covered with posters. These posters are original creations from photographs by Blaise Arnold (Last exit to Brooklyn, Night train to Kansas City), Henri Jee (Derrière les voutes) and Thierry Moine (Alone in the city, Hong Kong killers) whom I thank for their friendly participation.

The model, 50 mm thick, has an entrance hall with a ticket window on the ground floor. Upstairs, visible from the rear, the room and its screen with a row of seats. Behind the screen there is a depth of 10 mm to place an LCD screen (not supplied). The model is made of laser-cut cardboard. Model for collectors and adult modelers. Not suitable for a child under 14 years old. Model kit to paint and assemble in Ho scale – 1/87.

Package size: 31 × 22 × 2 cm
