Kinomuzeum 2012

To celebrate the inauguration of Kinomuzeum, the entrance hall of the Museum welcomes the neon sign of the legendary cinema Skarpa in Warsaw, torn down in 2008 to make room for a luxury apartment building.

The cinema Skarpa, opened in 1960, showed the most important Polish and foreign film premieres (Andrzej Wajda’s Man of Marble, among others). The cinema and the neon sign, which currently belongs to the Museum’s collection, was designed by Zygmunt Stępiński, outstanding architect and co-author of Warsaw post-war reconstruction designs, the W-Z Route and Nowy Świat, among others.
