"Draken" still alive....and kicking !


Göteborg, Nils-Einar Eriksson, 1956 
 
."In the opening speech of the 1995 Festival, it was announced that Draken, owned and operated by Svensk Filmindustri /SF, was to be closed down the coming summer to the benefit of the expanding multiplexes. SF was willing to leave the cinema to the Gothenburg Film Festival. SF´s main concern was the seats, newly installed, which could easily be moved to another cinema. An appeal was directed to the audience, to raise enough money to buy the seats and save the theater. This turned out very successful and each one of the 713 seats were sold symbolically for SEK 1.000! World famous Swedish director, Ingmar Bergman, was among those buying a seat and rescuing Draken"

Is this a PH...?

 
..a row of these PH 3 at Studentkåren, Götabergsgatan, was replaced 2012 due to the effects of copper thefts !

Stupid copper thieves (1)

Nordhemsgatan, Göteborg

"The FBI today ratcheted up the clamor to do something more substantive about the monumental growth of copper theft in the US. In a report issued today the FBI said the rising theft of the metal is threatening the critical infrastructure by targeting electrical substations, cellular towers, telephone land lines, railroads, water wells, construction sites, and vacant homes for lucrative profits. Copper thefts from these targets have increased since 2006; and they are currently disrupting the flow of electricity, telecommunications, transportation, water supply, heating, and security and emergency services, and present a risk to both public safety and national security."
