windows colours

tags: ,

RolexThis Rolex store in Wilmslow appears to be based in what was once a movie theatre. The tall coloured windows are something I associate with UK movie theatre architecture.

Late in the evening the coloured windows provide light, warmth, colour and a smile to the cold, dark, windy street. The colourful light made me smile. The colours are the colours of the Microsoft windows logo.


Without directly promoting products this Rolex store has promoted good spirit in a way that anyone, irrespective of income, can share.

Love it!

    Hey Wendy! This reminds me of an old cinema in Letchworth, from the same era! Indigo

    Strangely, there’s a building very much like that in Robbinsdale, MN — an abandoned theatre…

    Indigo, Pearl, thanks for your authorly selves dropping by to read and comment. It’s wonderful when a building with a particular use has a distinctive architecture, and sad when that design is lost in new uses. Glad you’ve both got cinema building like this nearby – keep photos for posterity. w
