Save Cinema Stars!

Saving A Lebanese Icon: Cinema Stars in Nabatieh

[SUPPORT ON INDIEGOGO: https://igg.me/at/save-cinema-stars]

Tiro Association for Arts (formerly known as Istanbouli Theatre) is a youth initiative from Lebanon, aiming to claim free and independent (cultural) spaces for young people. Free space is essential as it gives room to self-expression, developing oneself and meeting others. In a country like Lebanon, that has experienced civil war and is dealing with the conflict in neighbouring Syria, these spaces are extra important as they give youth and communities the place to independently connect with each other and envision an alternative future without war, conflict and hatred.

In 2016, the team of Tiro Association for Arts volunteered to renovate and reopen Cinema Stars, an old and iconic theatre in Nabatieh. This cinema, in the south of Lebanon, was established in 1972, and was closed due to the hardships of the Lebanese civil war in 1989. Since it's reopening in 2016, the association was able to use the space and organise many different cultural activities for the residents of Nabatieh and surrounding areas. Currently, our precious cinema is under pressure and threatened to be closed.

With this campaign we aim to buy Cinema Stars. This way we are able to continue our work, reviving culture and arts in Lebanon, and to keep its doors open for everyone to meet, self-express and envision a better future for Lebanon and the communities living in the country. Cinema Stars is a place of hope, support us to preserve it as such.

We love arts and we love old cinemas. Cinema Stars is a space we want to protect as a free space for all, especially for young people in Lebanon. We are a group of youth from the south of Lebanon. In 2016 we renovated and reopened Cinema Stars in Nabatieh. Currently, our space is under threat of closure. Please donate and share our campaign so that this public cultural space remains independent and free for all people. Thanks for your support!
