Smadar Theater

4 Lloyd George St
Jerusalem, Israel
TEL: 972-2-561-8168
This art-house cinema on leafy Lloyd George Street has drawn the artisterati for more than 80 years. As the first movie theater in Jerusalem to remain open on the Sabbath—which begins at sundown Friday and ends at nightfall on Saturday—it is also a symbol of pluralism in a city that is seen by some as yielding far too often to its ultra- Orthodox residents, who make up only a fourth of its population. (The celebrated Jerusalem poet Yehuda Amichai refers to the Smadar in this liberating context in two of his poems.)
