The ancient ruins of the former warehouse of the Ministry of Internal Trade re-emerge as an attractive Cultural Center in the coastal city of Gibara, in Holguín, whose opening is scheduled for next July 7, with the start of the 15th International Film Festival of Gibara.
"The facility was born as a project of Municipal Initiative of Local Development, subordinated to the Company of Services to the Art, whose first benefit is the rescue of the building"; commented Janet Ronda Báster, director of the entity.

She added that the project will generate sources of employment and income that will contribute to the conservation and development of the city, and will promote the Cuban culture through activities in dissimilar artistic expressions.

The Holguín creator Silvio Pérez Carralero was in charge of the cumbersome process of rescue and restoration of the property, damaged by hurricanes and by the continuous action of the wind and saltpeter, in which prevails the constructive style.

The original purpose of the site and the name of the facility "El Almacén", led to the design of the furniture and decoration, inspired by the wooden pallets in which the loads are usually moved.

Pérez Carralero said that the project will have a booth and a screen for the screening of films, a large stage for the presentation of orchestras and a dance area where exhibitions of medium-sized sculptures can also be displayed.
