Viewing: Photo | Street View

In the Nowa Huta industrial district of Krakow, Poland, the Kino Swit opened on 24th April 1953 (though some sources say 1956).

At first glance, it looks more like a government office building than a place of entertainment, with the exterior incorporating many classical elements such as pillars spanning the two storeys, pediments and roof balustrading. The interior was designed by Marian Sigmund and Irena Pac-Zalesna. The generous foyer space lead to the right hand side of the stalls. The auditorium had a reverse rake at the front.

The Kino Swit (“Dawn”, “Sunrise”) opened with the premiere of “Three Stories”, comprising three propaganda novellas.

It closed in 2002 and was converted into retail units and offices, with the auditorium becoming home to a bric-a-brac store.
