Radio City was a luxurious and modern cinema that opened on 18 September 1958 in Tehran.
Radio City was designed by Heydar Ghiai, a pioneer of modern architecture in Iran. The cinema was shut down after the 1979 Iranian Islamic revolution.
This single screen movie theatre, with a balcony, opened in 1958, and was designed by noted Iranian architect Heydar Ghiai-Chamlou, who also designed the Iranian Senate House, the Royal Tehran Hilton (now the Esteghlal Hotel) as well as many other cinemas, train stations and private residences throughout Iran.
The Cinema Radio City was noted for its huge curving façade, which was wildly illuminated in colorful neon at night. The theatre suffered a bombing in 1973 but didn’t close until the Revolution in 1979. It was afterward stripped of its neon signage and converted into a pharmacy, but today is unused and fallen into disrepair.
