The small and cozy 26 seat movie theatre creates great exposure for the movies and their makers while introducing the audience to some gems they might have missed. Open for hire for private and public use. One of the locations of festivals such as Obskuur Film FestivalViewpoint Documentary Film Festival and the Ghent International Short Film Festival.  

Event Location, Co-working space, Studio

The gallery, studio space and the theatre area are available for hire for private or public art shows, workshops, castings, try-out theatre, photo and film shoots. The space is regularly used for acting workshops (by guest mentors such as Nic Balthazar, Peter Monsaert, Wannes Destoop, Kris De Meester and Kadir Balci), castings (CA/ST Casting Studio), podcast recording and photo/film shoots.

The location offers co-working office space. Currently shared with casting directors and filmmakers. In the past Lars von Trier and his 'Nymphomaniac' team used the location as a production office and shooting location.
