Ciné Sura, a cinema in Echternach, has announced the launch of a crowdfunding campaign to finance a new projector and preserve the cinema experience for the community and region.

The cinema is among the oldest in Europe. To safeguard this historical cinema, the campaign noted it offers rewards, including the option to name the theatre after a donor for a year and free admission for life.

The Ciné Sura, a cultural landmark in Echternach, is faced with the challenge of replacing its outdated projector. "The projector is crucial to our operations and urgently needs to be replaced," explained Michael Battenberg, President of the Ciné Sura. The campaign aims to fund a modern 4K laser projector to improve the quality of film screenings while reducing energy consumption.

In recognition of generous contributions, the cinema will offer individual rewards. With a donation of €20,000, donors will have the opportunity to name the cinema after themselves for a year. For contributions of €2,500 or more, the cinema will offer free entry for life.

The campaign aims to raise €60,000 to enable the purchase and installation of the new projector. "Every contribution supports us in our efforts to maintain and improve the cinema experience for our visitors," said Thorben Grosser, a volunteer.

Donors can offer their support via So far, 122 supporters have helped to raise €16,845. The campaign has 35 more days to reach the €60,000 funding goal.
