Colosseum Cinema (rebuilding)

Oslo, Norway 1964

Description

The Colosseum Cinema was originally built in 1928 and is still among the largest cinemas in the world. The whole building was rebuilt in 1964, after a fire, and Fehn directed the rebuilding. The exterior has much of the old shape and expression, but the dome was expanded slightly. The interior was renewed.
