27. deserted cinema

Led singboard, wires, batteries installed on the projection screen of a deserted cinema in Govora, near Ramnicu Valcea. Romanian wording on signboard ('sfarsit' = 'the end'). As far as its furniture is concerned, the room was perfectly preserved. However, inside it was completely dark.

The sign was abandoned on site after it was turned on. Batteries were tested beforehand. They usually lasted for about two days of continual operation. It is quite sensible to believe that after two days of glowing in the dark, the signboard switched off, due to lack of power. Photo by Elena Ciobanu. More photos and a short movie here.
