The Cameo is one of the most emblematic movie theatre of “Art et Essai” in Belgium. It has “art-deco” facades dating back to 1930 which earned it the status of a 20th century heritage.
Renovations needed for the emblematic Cameo movie theatre
In 2015, the city of Namur decided to rehabilitate the Cameo. And after 2 years of renovation, it reopened its doors in March 2016.
Its five screening rooms were thus renovated, with the adding of a restaurant-brasserie, and the expansion of its reception area and added accessibility for people with reduced mobility.
In addition, the Cameo is now equipped with quality acoustics in conformity with current standards, as well as a system that optimizes its energy performance.
The rehabilitation of this movie theatre was carried out by Eiffage-Duchêne.
Quinette Gallay has taken up the challenges of implementing a renovation in an historic environment.
Quinette Gallay has also reduced the levels variations of the place by creating a flooring with varying heights and inclinations to compensate for differences in floor level and to offer a seats row alignment that provides perfect harmony to movie theatres.
