The Last Show.. Biography of Cilema Tripoli
Cinema was known among the Tripoli folk as Cilema and occupied an important place in the life of the city, extending from the thirties to the end of the twentieth century.
This book narrates the biography of the rise and prosperity of Cilema so that temples, rituals, stories, films and stars are formed, and cinema is intertwined with the life of an Arab city that has experienced all kinds of films in its life.
Cilema keeps pace with the contemporary history of Tripoli before it surrenders its soul, leaving a great legacy of images and sounds.
