Alhambra Cinema (Israel)
The cinema opened in 1937 and was one of the biggest and luxurious cinemas in Palestine. It was also used as a theatre hall and hosted famous artists such as Umm Kulthum, Farid al-Atrash and Leila Mourad. After the Independence War it reopened as the "Yafor Cinema." In 1963 it was taken over by the impresario Giora Godik and renamed "Alhambra". In the late 1970s the building was abandoned. In 2010 it underwent refurbishment and now houses the Israeli center for Scientology.
