Thanks to Nick Prince for keeping us updated on this.
Soon to open KINO-TEATR is a state of the art facility, unique in its location and design, housing a main auditorium of around 100 seats with its own bar and an integrated (and separate) gallery, bar and restaurant. This new facility will be home to theatre performances, films, music, comedy, poetry and performance and events, as well as a range of educational opportunities for the residents of St Leonards and Hastings.
This new ‘arts centre’ connects directly to an existing and very successful gallery, The Baker Mamanova Gallery, which has been one of the drivers of regeneration and change in the Norman Road area over a number of years. Kino-Teatr is housed in one of the oldest surviving cinema buildings in the UK, built 4 years after the very first cinema in the country. This contributes to the space’s unique atmospheric quality, which is equally enhancing to the arts it presents and to audience experience.
In addition to the Kino-Teatr auditorium and bar and the Baker Mamonova Gallery, Kino-Teatr is opening an exciting new dining experience with their outstanding quality Kino-Teatr Restaurant due to open June 1st.
