Rivoli Cinema Melbourne

riv 5

He Who Eats All of Our Leftovers knows how much I like Art Deco architecture, so he recently surprised me with a trip to the Rivoli Cinema in Camberwell, Melbourne.

The Rivoli was built in 1921, rebuilt in 1940 and refurbished and extended again in 2001. The following photo shows the mosaic behind the Candy Bar.

The Grand Staircase is spectacular.

The art is beautiful too.

We saw Love and Mercy, which tells the story of Brian Wilson from the Beach Boys.
