I am always on the lookout to photograph relics of faded grandeur, and art deco buildings certainly fit into this category.

While exploring the Caribbean for a seaside blog project called The Lost Promenade, we came across this derelict gem of a cinema in Curacao’s capital Willemstad.

Would love to see a photo from 1943

We'd love to see a photo of the Cinelandia from 1943. It would be so lovely to see it in its heyday instead of the sad faded grandeur it has now. Why not upload your photo in a new post to the main Art Deco Cinemas page at:

Looking forward to seeing it!

If you would like, I can send you a photo of the Cinelandia from 1943. It was taken by my father when he was in the army in the American army (Coast ARtillery) stationed in Curacao.
