Two years long the İstanbulians were protesting for the Emek
Cinema, a hundred years old Movie theatre.

The Emek had been the location of countless Movi Premieres on Yeşilçam Sokak, the Turkish Broadway.Sometimes the İstanbul Film Festival would revive thge usage of Yeni Rüya Cinema as well.

It was located in the same building together with the Melek Cinema. The building was public, the half privatization opened the doors for a decision to built an new complex, a multiplex cinema on the fourth floor.

The first floors will be reserved for commercial usage. A proof for the ignorance of culturL heritage the current public management is famous for.

Listen to Aziza Tan, Director of İstanbul Film Festival.
