The town of Planá has a cinema from the 1950s on the square but needs a cultural hall. Such was the task of architectural competition. By creating a social hall without elevation, a cinema in the city without compensation would disappear. But we wanted to keep cinema running after the reconstruction.
We therefore decided to rebuild the cinema in a multipurpose hall with a mechanical sliding auditorium. Changing the luminous and acoustic environment of the hall was to provide the interior shutters with different surfaces on the back and the face.
In the square we wanted to open the cinema building outside cultural events. In the entrance area we have a café and a ticket and souvenir shop. New windows should also connect the inside of the hall with the courtyard. It would preserve the original sgraffito on the facade and use the various types of plaster, common in the neighborhood.
