About this creation

My latest creation is the Monde (Roughly means 'World' in French) Cinema.

It's inspired by 1920/30's Egyptian/Mayan styled Art deco cinema's.

It took quite a while to come up with the right scale and layout, I looked at a lot of reference material online and in books before deciding what to do. The grand Rex in Paris was my biggest influence on proportions (My interior is nothing like the real one!) I wanted a full height lobby and a reasonably imposing height from the exterior. I decided to have the auditorium against the street rather than at the back, I thought it would give me an opportunity to put a large sign on the front and also to give me access at the back of the building. There is a bar downstairs which I thought would break up the exterior a little and also make the auditorium better scaled.

I set myself several goals on this project;

Working brick built doors and brick built windows.

A floor pattern in the lobby rather than my usual tiled floor.

It's taken several months to complete this project.

To use bricks I had available! (The only exception was purchasing the blue seats)

Quoting eric s i *thought* upon seeing your creation, and all of the fine details provided in the extra pictures: this has to be a LEGO Set! ___ beautiful and inspiring!!! i really enjoyed the bar/lounge most of all -- seeing it when i scrolled down made me jump! took me back to old humphrey bogart [cameos in Bugs Bunny cartoons]. the ones where Bugs accidentally gets mixed up with "some" mobster, then there's a cocktail performer with a fruitbasket hairdoo singing to distract them (it's Bugs in disguise. lol!) viewing the exterior, it's extremely deceiving as to just how much detail lies beneath the already smoothly detailed facade. 5/5 GREAT!!!
Thank you very much! I always enjoy trying to make small scenes in my MOC's. Got to try to bring it to life somehow!

Quoting Nick Barrett Gorgeous architecture, and some of the most beautiful interior design I've seen. Wonderful work.
Thank you! Can't go to all that hard work on an exterior and not compliment it on the inside!

Quoting Henrik Hoexbroe Wow, lots to like here! I especially like the innovative interior decorations and the black van...
Thanks! The van is a slightly modified version of a one I built a couple of years ago. It's one of the only things I've made that's mostly stayed intact!

Quoting Leda Kat =^..^= Oh wow, such a wonderful cinema! I love that style/era and you've captured it exquisitely. The colours and shapes and patterns in the lobby are spot on. I love the staircase design.
Thank you! It has been a long overdue project making my own cinema. The lobby isn't inspired by any particular cinema, as a matter of fact I found it very difficult finding reference material showing tall lobby's. One of my earliest MOC's used the same arched brick design but it felt totally appropriate that it be in this building as well!

Quoting El Barto ! Excellent build! That saw tooth detail is especially fetching. Awesome!
Thanks! I wanted an effect like the trunk of a palm tree. It was difficult to put into place, good thing it doesn't take much weight otherwise it might crumble!

This build pulled me right in. Amazing architecture and color scheme. Its the details that are the real highlight: the food in the display case at the consession stand, the drama unfolding in the cafeteria, the projection room, I could go on. Wonderful job, simply amazing!
