Galaxy Theatre,Art Moderne (rendering by Rowel Quimosing)
Architecture by Pablo Antonio (1937)
Rizal Avenue, Manila, Philippines
Sadly, it was demolished in 2008.
If only there was an extensive urban reconstruction on the damage brought by WW2, or at least a subway system was built instead of light rail,
the infamous Avenida Rizal might still be known today as our own version of the ‘Broadway’.
I hope that this will not be the fate of the remaining stand-alone theatres in Manila like the Capitol in Escolta. Save our heritage structures!
