The physical space that is known as Katona József Theatre today has functioned as a theater and a cinema for certain periods since its construction.The building’s design was presumably ordered more than a hundred years ago, by its owner who was fascinated by films. Fun fact: the theater-space gave place to the first revolving stage of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy.
