The Moulin Rouge, Paris. It was built in 1889, and became birthplace and home to the can-can dance. While the production of the show is very similar to what Baz Luhrmann portrayed in the film, important to note that the interior looks absolutely nothing like what the film shows.
Added a sepia tone to this one and applied the Orton effect.. Thought it would be interesting to take the bright neon lights of the present back into the past.
It is an amazing building, inside and out, so original, borderline on tacky, but able to get away with a lot more than if it were in any other city.
