French-Language Ghost Sign in Lviv Theater

Inside of Les Kurbas Theater in Lviv is a ghost sign in French. The building was built in 1909 and originally functioned as a variety theater. The sign dates from the first era (1909-1918), or possibly from the interwar period since I see "Polonia" written there (though seems that during the interwar period only a cinema functioned).
