Inauguration of Cine theatre Triomphe set for May 18, 2015
Here is a picture of the inside of Ciné théâtre Triomphe set for inauguration on May 18, 2015. After so many years in the waiting, it looks like it will finally happen. The population around Port-au-Prince will finally have a comfortable place where they can go to the movies.
What do you think? do you think more movie theaters should be built?
The Movie theater 'Ciné théâtre Triomphe', acquired by the Bank of the Republic of Haiti (BRH) will reopen in may 18, 2015, after a complete rehabilitation work at a cost of US$7 million, including the cost of additional land purchased in the adjacent space. The Cine Triomphe was one of the major cinemas in Port-au-Prince. Since closing in 1988, it has been used as a warehouse until it was taken by the State in late 2008 and the rehabilitation started in December 2012. The théâtre Triomphe will finally be inaugurated for the Haitian moviegoers on May 18, 2015 after being postponed in August 2014, due to parking problems. The multiplex has been designed to accommodate state of the art performances for dance, theater, concert, film projections. Two rooms of the new theatre will accommodate 450 and 300 people and a stage that can accommodate at least fifty artists. A third room has been equipped to host conferences, meetings, seminars and forums. The first two rooms will have unique theater systems-- HD Digital, screen of 12m x 6.5m mounted on removable frames (first in Haiti); a professional digital audio system separate of cinema audio system and an automated lighting system.
