Theater Kino

Leading Sapporo culture through films
A Mini-Theater that operated by funds collected from Sapporo citizens

This theater opened in 1992 with 29 seats as a movie theater that is funded by the citizens of Sapporo. In 1998, it relocated to its current location and now has two theaters, with 63 seats and 100 seats respectively. There is a top-of-the-line sound system in place and Hokkaido-grown diatomaceous soil is used on the walls to keep the air clean. The theater’s policy of only showing films that Hiromi Nakajima, the manager, personally views and selects, has not changed since its opening. It is now known nationally as a theater that shows films that are high in quality, even if not distributed by one of the big film distribution companies. Hiroshi Nakajima, the Representative, is committed to creating a rich film and video culture in Sapporo and as part of his activities, he holds “Kino Film Lectures” and “Fim Production Workshop for Kids” every year.
