What is Lokomotiva

Shortly about the space 
KINO KULTURA as a project space for contemporary performing arts and culture in 2015 was founded by Theatre Navigator Cvetko and Lokomotiva- Centre for new initiatives in arts and culture.

Before, this space was known as cinema KULTURA, a significant cultural space, a monument of the Macedonian culture.
In this space first performance in Macedonian language was presented on 20th December 1944. Uranija was the first nomination of the space cinema (later renamed in Kultura) and it was built in 1937. After Second World War cinema Kultura had important role in development of the urban culture of the city.

Nowadays building is a private ownership and is rented and reformed in cultural space by Theatre of Navigator Cvetko and Lokomotiva- Centre for New Initiatives in Arts and Culture with support by Municipality Centre.
