Central Cultural Dacia

Located in Bistrita, in the northern Transylvanian region of Romania, the three-screen Cinema Dacia opened in the late-1970’s.

By the early-2000’s it was becoming rather rundown, and in 2011 agreement was reached between its owner, Romania Film, and Bistrita-Nasaud County Council whereby it was acquired by the Council. In 2015 renovation and modernisation works began, and the building re-opened (date not known) as a cultural centre, the Central Cultural Dacia.

The former Screen 1 is now a multi-purpose hall for live events. With 311 seats, it has been renamed “Sala Valeria Peter Predescu”, after the famous singer who specialised in Transylvanian Romanian folklore.

The former Screen 2 retains its use as a cinema. Renamed “Sala Adrian Pintea”, after the celebrated Romanian actor, this has 154 seats and is equipped with a Sony 4k 2D and 3D projector with a 5.1 surround sound system. A new screen was installed, together with comfortable armchair seating.

The former Screen 3 has been transformed into a rehearsal room for Dor Romanesc, a professional artistic ensemble founded in Bistrita in 1996.

There is a café, and office space has also been created. The total cost of the project was over 2.5m lei (around £430,000).
