Promoters Ed O’Leary and Joe Kelly (The Good Room) have announced that they will be taking over Cork’s former art house cinema, the Kino, opening mid-September as a live music venue, theatre space, bar and café.
The Good Room are the team behind the award-winning Live at St Luke’s concert series, It Takes A Village Festival, Cork Podcast Festival, Crosstown Drift, and a host of other unique events around Cork city and county.
The venue will boast a state-of-the-art PA and lighting system, with full AV set up as well as a bar and café. The aim is to do as they have done already with Live at St Luke’s: take a space and put the best of local, national, and international, acts on with other disciplines like theatre, film, comedy, and family events being catered for going forward.
