The Loft Cinema (Jan 2015 to Aug 20, 2022)
The Loft Cinema was a downtown, second-storey, soft-seat, boutique theatre operating in Cobourg, ON between Jan 2015 and August 2022. We specialized in contemporary documentaries and independent and foreign films. We also presented LIVE Music, mostly Jazz and Chamber music. We played Ballets and Operas from the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden and was home to Les AMIS Chamber Music Concerts, a live classical music series featuring world-acclaimed classical musicians. The LOFT featured a stage, 20' movie screen, digital cinema system and full PA. The building, a beautiful, art-deco, 1922-vintage, former worship space was purchased in April 2022 with the intention of converting the second storey to residential apartments.
Ken Prue, founder, creator, owner and operator of Loft Cinemas transitioned the business to LOFT Productions to present Live Music in and around Northumberland County and Eastern Ontario.
