Rivitalising an abandoned cinema
The courtyard of the former Fascist party building (Casa del Fascio) had been used as an outdoor cinema during the Yugoslav period. This unique space has been partially restored for the use of contemporary film screenings (‘Cinema LA’ and ‘Kino Mediteran’). The Javna multidisciplinarna infrastruktura “Augusta Insulae”, in cooperation with the Mediterranean Film Festival of Split, organizes screenings of selected films from the festival in Split.
The complete restoration of the courtyard and building aim to transform the abandoned space into a meeting point and cultural centre, especially for children and young people. This new multidisciplinary infrastructure aims at improving the quality of life and revitalising an abandoned area. The complete restoration project includes the restoration of the screen in concrete, the renovation of the courtyard for the spectators, the restoration of the front and lateral facades, the construction of the sanitary facilities and the installation of computer equipment.
