Festival director of the Nederlands Silent Film Festival, Daan van den Hurk, visited the center of Eindhoven, The Netherlands, in search of theaters that have disappeared. Small theaters where a hundred years ago silent films were shown. Is there anything left of them on these historical sites?
Short answer: no. Old buildings had to make way for new construction, street plans were changed and warm lively theaters replaced by modern shop fronts.
In the video below, Van den Hurk visits the spots where Cinema Parisien, the Rembrandt Theater and Chicago Theater must’ve stood. Naturally, he also drops by the ‘home’ of the NSFF, Pand P.
