Cinema Kino-Dessé

Cinema Kino-Dessé, via dell'Angiolo, Livorno
The Cinema “Kino-Dessé” in Via dell’Angiolo was an avant-garde movie theater which has been open for the last ten years, with an affectionate but lately dwindling public. I said “was” because the theater closed for good last Sunday, not a very good news for the new year.

In the last months the owners asked for some solidarity, but they got thousands of “likes” on Facebook without selling one ticket more. The last show was sold out.

3 euros per show? If I read that correctly, that sounds like a real deal.

Always sad to see places like this go out of business.

That is too bad. Maybe something new and better will open in 2014? We can always hope! :)

"Likes" on facebook can be very deceptive, can't they?

Birdman said...

Kind of ironic. Sold out show celebrates the theater's closing for pact of attendance?

I hope someone will reuse it wisely. The building is beautiful! Happy New Year, VP!
