Probably the most loved and remembered movie theatre of the one-screen era in Tel-Aviv. The initial plan was to build an opera house but then, the owner, Jacob Moghrabi, a wealthy merchant who just arrived from Syria, changed his mind. Built on the city’s main square,the Moghrabi Theatre was everybody’s meeting place.The Moghrabi closed in 1986 . The building was demolished in the mid 90’s, and is used now as a parking space.
