WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE
Excuse my politicking, but after digging through CNN’s webpage to find out what the hell is going on in the Middle East (Yes, I had to DIG because you know what’s plastered all over the front page? Robin William’s death. Not to undermine him or the tragedy of his loss, but I will admit, I was kind of angry that it took me more than three clicks to get to international news). Anyway, WHAT THE FUCK WHAT THE FUCK WHAT THE FUCK. Convert or die? I get this has been going on for centuries, but it is unbelievably disheartening that mass groups of people do not have an ounce of humanity, and perhaps not only that, but do not have a small shred of liberal thought that humans have the right to choose.
HOW is it that some countries have figured it out and some haven’t? Does anyone ever think about how some religions concluded “we believe what we believe, but we also accept religious differences?” and other religions claim that the fine print states we have to kill everyone that disagrees?
i get it, welcome to the world Suki. it just aggravates me that after all this hullabaloo on the news, it still boils down to shit i knew in middle school, aka Sunni vs. Shiite vs. everybody else. COME ON.
"A long time ago I learned not to explain things to people. It misleads them into thinking they’re entitled to know everything I do."
Exploring Europe’s Oldest Running Cinemas on Instagram
To see more photos and videos from Europe’s oldest cinemas, explore the Etoile Pagode, Kino International and Cameo Cinema location pages. For a glimpse into cinemas across the world, browse the #cinematreasures hashtag.
Founded in 1911, the Oxford Picture Palace (as it was then known) has been closed, reopened, refurbished and renamed many times in its long and enduring history. Like many of the oldest running cinemas in Europe, the staying power of the Ultimate Picture Palace stands as a testament to our love for film.
Whether it’s Berlin’s modernist Kino International—built in the 1960s, hosting premieres until the fall of the Berlin wall in 1989 and now home to the Berlinale Film Festival—or Edinburgh’s 1914-built Cameo (@thecameocinema) with its terrazzo floor and original ticket kiosks, some of Europe’s oldest cinemas are filled with undoubtable charm.
Over the last three years, Instagrammers across Europe have been capturing these great veterans of the celluloid medium. With their help, we put together a list of some favorites to explore:
