Description:The picture shows the interior of the ‘Savoja’ cinema in Tirana in approximately 1940. The wooden seats on the first floor are fitted with light-coloured slipcovers. The stage is closed off by dark heavy curtains.
Comment:The inserted name ‘Luce’ (an Italian film and photo production company) indicates that the photograph was taken during the Italian occupation of Albania between 1939 and 1943. The building was renamed ‘Teatri Kombëtar’ (National theatre) after World War II.
