From the architect. Completing the fourth side of a square comprised of three historic barracks buildings, the layout of our cinema defines a spacious and legible square, offering a flexible new public space for hosting cultural events such as the Aurillac’s international street theatre festival.

Compact and efficient in its function, the Cristal Cinema wraps around the full height entrance hall, which peels away to enhance the view between Carmes Street and the clock building.

The project’s sculptural expression implies the motion inherent to cinema and was envisaged as a rock crystal grown out of the square, its facets continuously playing with light throughout the day and night.
