Ostland Film (Carl Peters)


Here is a photo from DER FILM newspaper from 28 January 1943, showing the interior of the Splendid–Palast cinema where the Carl Peters and other films were shown in Riga, and on the right a recent photo (the cinema survived WWII and Soviet Occupation):




The Splendid Palast was built in 1923 and was the place of many Latvian film premieres. It is a cherished example of Art Noveau architecture still to be found in Riga. Here are contemporary photos of its beautiful Rococo ceiling and the exterior of the cinema's entranceway.
