Lale Movie Theater has opened the gates at the entrance to Beyoglu (Pera, Istanbul, Turkey) in the beginning of 1940. The cinema used to hang up large movie display cross the street for the advertisement of the new films. These called for “fener” (lantern) and usually designed by Mithat Ağakay.

The Sea Hawk is a 1940 American Warner Bros. feature film starring Errol Flynn as an English privateer who defends his nation’s interests on the eve of the Spanish Armada. The film was the tenth collaboration between Flynn and director Michael Curtiz. The film’s screenplay was written by Howard Koch and Seton I. Miller. The sparkling and rousing musical score is recognized as a high point in Erich Wolfgang Korngold’s career.”
