Cinema Amalie

NART’s cosy hall on the second floor is now a cinema. The cinema is called “Amalie” –  named after the famous Narva citizen. Amalie Kreisberg was a Kreenholm factory worker at the turn of the century who died defending the interests of other workers. This strong female figure was an inspiration for more than one generation. Both the children’s club and the library in the building that now houses the Narva Art Residence were named after her. To this day, the older generation calls the building “Amalie”. It’s a strong message and one that fits in well with the concept of cinema, as each film is dedicated to a protagonist who takes on his or her challenges.
