Harstad Cinema is an architectual pearl. It was built in 1955, and designed by Jan Inge Hovig, an architect that designed many of the most important buildings in Northern Norway after the war. The cinema is a work of art, where varied and rich materials are used; teak, marble, copper and leather.
Some of the structure of the cinema is changed to meet modern demands, but most of the original elements - and atmosphere - are kept.
The cinema is situated in the centre of Harstad, 1 minutte walk form the town square and the festival hotell Scandic Hotell Harstad, in Erlingsgate 3.
Come and see great art in a cinema with great style!
Our event "Cinema Kapella" takes place in Harstad Kirke, a church near the centre of Harstad, just ten minutes walk from the cinema. It is designed by the same architect as the architect behind the cinema; Jan Inge Hovig.
Harstad Kirke is a little up-hill from the cinema.
