The grand staircase in the Alexandria rises around the lobby, passing several metallic Art Deco reliefs. Unlike mundane modern multiplexes, classic movie palaces transported the visitor into a beautiful environment that blended fantasy and reality just as movies themselves do. Phaeton Group endeavored to capture the Alexandria lobby's artistic luxury in its photos.
