Since there is no longer an art house cinema in the district around Gmünd except a Cineplexx, the wish appeared to create an art house cinema away from the mainstream for the cultural interested cinema goers. Die Reihe EU XXL made the acquisition of award-winning films including film rights for affordable prices possible and hence the former cinema tradition was revived in this small town.
In cooperation with the parish Gmünd and diocese Gurk, with a lot of own work and the support of many sponsors, the former theatre hall in the presbytery Gmünd was cleared out and revitalised in 2012. By now, it is a very harmonious location, equipped with comfortable armchairs and it can provide 50 persons with lovely seats, legroom included. So, the Art Cinema Gmünd is an extraordinary and valuable enrichment for the Artists’ Town Gmünd and it has been the 17th vacant building of the city that came to new life.
