Not true. Yes, hard work is a good idea. And necessary for progress. But this Protestant paradigm is negligent in addressing the role of education and inequalities. Yes, work hard, sure, the #maker movement has driven this point home, but it’s not the end all, be all. Nor is it even close. Broad acceptance of this, and the spirit of this notion was to keep people in check, maintain order among the classes, and limit aspirations toward upward achievements. I see it everywhere these days, and I wish more people addressed the full story. You can’t tell a child born into poverty to work hard and things will work out. There are those success stories, yes. But if we are all willing to accept this idea, then there’s no reason to work towards fixing the social injustices that limit many people’s access to basic human rights. I’m ranting, sorry. Hope some of y’all agree. I know this is one fortune cookie, but you can see this “work hard = happiness/success” idea scattered across the internet right now, and probably on the walls of industrialized workshops all across the Western world at the turn of the century. I just want people to acknowledge that it doesn’t end at hard work, that’s just one (very important) part of the equation.

Exploring Europe’s Oldest Running Cinemas on Instagram

To see more photos and videos from Europe’s oldest cinemas, explore the Etoile Pagode, Kino International and Cameo Cinema location pages. For a glimpse into cinemas across the world, browse the #cinematreasures hashtag.

Founded in 1911, the Oxford Picture Palace (as it was then known) has been closed, reopened, refurbished and renamed many times in its long and enduring history. Like many of the oldest running cinemas in Europe, the staying power of the Ultimate Picture Palace stands as a testament to our love for film.

Whether it’s Berlin’s modernist Kino International—built in the 1960s, hosting premieres until the fall of the Berlin wall in 1989 and now home to the Berlinale Film Festival—or Edinburgh’s 1914-built Cameo (@thecameocinema) with its terrazzo floor and original ticket kiosks, some of Europe’s oldest cinemas are filled with undoubtable charm.

Over the last three years, Instagrammers across Europe have been capturing these great veterans of the celluloid medium. With their help, we put together a list of some favorites to explore:
