Marignan Cultural Centre

Located just north-west of the main city centre. The Marignan Cinema was built on the place of a former entertainment establishment. Although architect R. Ajoux (who has also designed the Mirano Cinema and Century Cinema on the same road) had made drawings and plans for a cinema named ‘Miramar’, it was eventually built by architects G. Rousseau and Arthur Meuleman in 1958, and opened in 1959.

In 1967 the auditorium was expanded to a total of 625 seats. The theatre was exploited by Les Cineés Madou until 1976, and had it’s final screening in 1979.

It was then used by INSAS (Institut National Supérieur des Arts du Spectacle) until 1991. After some reconstructon, the building has been in use as a conference centre since 1995. The original auditorium has been restored, and the projection booth is in it’s original state as well. In 2018 it became a cultural centre.
