Home to an increasing number of emerging talents and established artists, Beirut still falls short on providing necessary artistic hubs and cultural platforms for the creative and artistic scene to grow and thrive. Being part of this artistic scene, the urge to find a space and turn it into a cultural meeting point has made us look into different directions.
Fortunately and to much of our surprise and joy, Gemmayzé offers such a space charged with its very own architectural and cultural heritage in the form of “Theatre Gemmayze” located on the premises of the Collège des Frères du Sacré-Coeur, the century-old school accessible through the main entrances of Gouraud Street and Pasteur Street.
This hidden treasure is a 317 seat theatre co-joined by a charming and spacious hall that could perfectly host exhibitions and artistic events. Blessed with an easy access and a spacious parking space, (400 cars capacity), this cultural meeting point bound to attract the avid artistic-going crowd and furthermore initiate a growing segment into the cultural dimension.
