GAZA CITY, GAZA - NOVEMBER 28: Palestinian children attend a film show inside Cinema bus in Gaza city on November 28,2021 in Gaza City, Gaza. Gaza's first cinema was built in 1944 and by the 1960s there were as many as 10 operating, however political disputes, conflict, and religious reasons caused the closure of all cinemas during the first Palestinian intifada in 1987 and they continued to remain closed due to government and religious restrictions. The last show in a cinema was screened 24 years ago. Today, traces of only three of the old cinemas remain, Al-Nasr Cinema and Amer Cinema are still standing, although heavily damaged and abandoned and the third, Al-Samer Cinema has been turned into a car licensing facility. Recently, a fully equipped mobile cinema bus was established and has once again given Gaza residents a chance to experience the feeling of watching a film at the cinema, an event many have never experienced in their lives. The shuttering of cinemas forced many residents to seek out other ways of viewing and screening films, makeshift street cinemas, home projectors and cafe film screenings are all ways people have found to take in a film, with the opening of the new cinema bus, which can accommodate up to 50 passengers and creates the real experience of stepping into a cinema hall, it brings an opportunity for residents of all ages to once again be immersed in the cinema experience, bringing hope and a reprieve from the struggles of daily life in Gaza.
