The Capitol cinema in Lucerne will remain open for another five years until the end of 2027. The employees were informed accordingly on Thursday. An employee confirmed this on request. Only recently it was said that the “Capitol” would definitely stop operating.

The lease in the building on Bundesplatz in Lucerne, where the Capitol cinema is located, would have expired at the end of 2022. The cinema operator Blue Cinema has now been able to negotiate an extension of the contract with the house owner, which allows the cinema to continue operating. This is what it says in the letter to the employees, among other things.

On the other hand, nothing will change at the Kino Moderne in Lucerne. As already decided, this will definitely be closed at the end of 2022.
