Cinema Lux

Resiste. Resiste contro venti e maree. Contro la moda dei multiplex e la diffusione dei DVD. Il cinema Lux di Massagno sopravvive in un contesto problematico. E vi riesce grazie al sostegno del Comune, di un’associazione di amici e soprattutto grazie alla tenacia e all’idealismo di Maurice Nguyen che con sua moglie tiene in vita una sala cinematografica simbolo di qualità e di originalità.
