4 Lloyd George St, Jerusalem, , Israel

This art-house cinema on leafy Lloyd George Street has drawn the artisteratifor more than 80 years. As the firstmovie 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.)
