Lumbardhi Cinema proposed for permanent protection by the MCYS

Lumbardhi Cinema is amongst 54 cultural heritage sites proposed by the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports for inclusion in the list of sites under permanent protection.

Following the evaluation by the Kosovo Council for Cultural Heritage, the formal approval of this list is expected in early 2022, when we celebrate the 70th anniversary of the establishment of Lumbardhi Cinema.

Following a seven-year process of cooperation between local cultural organisations and communities, and the relevant public institutions from the central and local levels, it is expected that next year will be decisive in defining the long-term institutional model for the sustainable management and development of the cinema and beginning the restoration of the building with the support of the European Union.

Lumbardhi Foundation extends its gratitude to the institutions and all partners, supporters and many individuals involved in all the phases of the process.
