Join us for a listening party with @kerningcultures on tuesday, february 19 around their podcast episode, "a cinema, demolished". 🎤🎧⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
this story is a small slice of dubai's history, told through one building and the people it was important to.
when demolition began on the plaza cinema in 2015, something unusual happened; dubai residents began visiting the site to collect mementos from the building’s rubble. the cinema was almost as old as the uae itself – a place which many people held an emotional connection to. in a cinema, demolished, a story about a cinema that was much more than just a cinema.
join us for a night of honest discussion about impermanence and urban memory in dubai. come with your thoughts, stories, or just come with a friend. we'll take care of the rest (including some light refreshments).
rsvp via the link in our bio! entrance is free but spaces are limited so make sure you sign up!
