Historical Amnesia

Avenue Theatre along Rizal Avenue in Manila is about to be demolished. The theater was designed by National Artist for Architecture Juan Napkil, who also designed the Quiapo Church. The building survived World War 2 but sadly will surely not survive the bulldozers of the wrecking crew. The area will be turned into a parking lot.
