London: Rio Cinema
As the relationship between Emma (Anne Hathaway) and Ian (Rafe Spall) begins to unfold, they head to the Rio Cinema for a date. For urbane Londoners, the Rio is a cultural oasis. In Northeast London, the movie theater is one of the few remaining art deco palaces, showcasing a creative program of first-run, revival and foreign fare, including a Turkish film festival. Originally opened in 1915 as the Kingsland Empire, the building went through several drastic makeovers until it became the Rio. Its famous curved art deco front was designed by F. E. Bromige and created in 1937. But the name “Rio” did not adorn the building till much later.
