Jerusalem Cinema City Open

Hezbollah is escalating its activity near Syrian border.

The Israeli navy stopped an Iranian rocket shipment headed for Gaza,

from Syria around to Sudan, under a Panamanian flag!

Spending so much time and effort on terror makes sense to them?

Government foreign service workers are striking.

Hundreds of thousands of haredi protesters went home.

The Sandstorm from Egypt is finally over.

And the new Jerusalem Cinema City is open.

The area outside is landscaped with trees, flowers and signs.

Wish I knew why they used so many tall thin cypress trees?

Inside the fountain is flowing,

and huge chandeliers and bright floors shine.

The theaters are down, down under the ground.

The foot bridge is closed off for now,

but some shops are open.

There are plenty of ticket sellers with little to do,

and freezer case in the ice cream store is empty.

There seems to be something for everyone,

Uncle Sam wants you,

even Elvis wearing brown shoes, but with a blue guitar.

We used to use the expression “Bigger than Ben-Hur.”

But while I did not see him,

 Moses is here with all Ten Commandments.

Outside on the roof is Noah with his ark and animals,

and colorful Smurfs too.

The Zipora Express restaurant was quite full and busy.

Unfortunately, not all the escalators were working.

I did a lot of walking up and down these steps,

but one woman was there with a walker.

So many lights, colors and busy stuff,

anyone with a seizure disorder should beware.

Actually, you could probably develop one if you walk around long enough.

Jerusalem, Israel, ‘city of lions’ has a new attraction.

Lights, action, camera, but for now, the theaters are closed on Shabbat.

    Is this an “only in Israel” story, where you managed to work in Uncle Sam, Elvis (I am a native Memphian), Moses, and the Smurfs? That’s why I love your posts.

      Thank you, Sheldan! If I wanted to really make it an “only in Israel” story, I would have added that the ONLY person who I knew working on Cinema City, I saw outside when I was taking these photos, and he called out to me and waved!

    When I came back from the states about a month ago and was meeting my govt worker son on the way to the museum (to give out goodies) I called to say that I was approaching. He asked where I was, so I said:
    “near a boat”
    “Oh, that’s the ark.”
    “Ark? Like Noah’s?”
    I didn’t expect that. Well I guess I must visit sometime…

      I saw a delivery of large pieces of scenery awhile ago, but a guard at the time told me not to take photos. Too late, I already had some, but was not sure where to use them.
