The last movie theatre to begin operating in free Kaunas. “Romuva”, beeing the biggest and most modern cinema with 687 seats, is a unique legacy of Lithuanian cinematic history, the only cinema theatre in Kaunas which preserved its functions and mission. This was the result of huge public endeavour. The modernity and contemporary trend of the building are even more highlighted by a turret underlining the glazed entrance, which had become one of the symbols. However, the urban solution of the object was probably most important to the city. When the cinema building was retracted to the depth of the land plot, a small and cosy public space was formed.
