    I'm not an explorer but I am an inveterate traveller and had a fabulous trip to Marrakech in Ferbuary this year. My other half lived there for 3 months and had been banging on for us to take a trip there for years. We spent a week wandering the city and coming across the Cinema Eden and being invited inside by the caretaker(?) was my personal highlight of the trip as I am a huge movie buff.

    This cinema has been written about in the past (but not on this forum as far as I can see) so I won't bore you with the details apart from syaing that the cinema openend in 1926 and closed in 2009. It's being cared for at the moment with a view to being restored. There were no signs of work being done and from what I could see, there's very little required to get it up and running again.

    Here's an article from the Guardian featuring the Eden:
