קולנוע סמדר
הבניין הוקם בשנת 1928 על ידי גוטלוב בוירלה. בית קולנוע המתפקד ברציפות זה כ-80 שנה. בתחילה נקרא סינימה אוריינט, לאחר שונה לסינימה ריג’נט ושימש כמועדון לאנשי הצבא הבריטי. מאוחר יותר שונה שמו לקולנוע סמדר. בשנת 1949 הופעל הקולנוע על ידי ארבעה חיילים יהודים משוחררים. אחד מהם, אריה צ’צ’יק שרכש את המבנה והפעילו עד 1993. לאחר שיפוצן, בשנת 1996, חזר לתפקד כקולנוע בשם "לב סמדר".
קולנוע סמדר הוא "מוסד" ירושלמי שזכה למעמד מיוחד בזיכרונם של ירושלמים רבים, ובמיוחד אלה שהתגוררו בעיר בשנות ה-50 וה-60 (של המאה העשרים).

The Smadar Theater, a venerable Jerusalem institution, was built in 1928 by Gotlieb Beuerle and is the only Jerusalem cinema that has operated almost continuously for 80 years.
The theater underwent several name changes, starting as the Orient Cinema, then called the Regent Cinema and eventually it was named Smadar (1949-1993). After its renovation in 1996, the theater resumed operation under the name Lev Smadar.

Translation of the text on the sign:
[Paragraph in the Hebrew text that does not appear in the English version]
Smadar Cinema is a Jerusalem "institution" that has gained a special status in the memory of many Jerusalemites, especially those who lived in the city in the 1950s and 1960s (of the twentieth century).
