March 27 Warsaw will have a new private theater.The founder and owner of the Kamienica is Polish stage, film and television actor Emilian Kamiński. His new theater is located at 93 Solidarności Avenue, by Bankowy Square, in a building that dates from the 1910s and was designed in the Vienna Secession style.

The theater's three auditoriums take up a total floor area of some 2,000 sq m. Scena Parter on the ground floor seats 100 people, Scena Oficyna 300 people and the smallest auditorium, Scena Piwniczka, another 80 people.

Kamiński also plans to accommodate a hostel and actor's school in the building this year. The restoration of the building and courtyard cost Kamiński's Atut Foundation some zl.10 million. Half this sum came from European Union funding. To cover the other half of the cost, Kamiński delved into his own pockets and procured funds from the Warsaw City Council, the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage and the regional governing body. The building's residents not only welcomed the Kamienica theater but also applied to work as theater staff.

Kamiński on many occasions has said that he wants people to come to his theater for the whole evening, as was the custom before the war. Thus Kamienica's audiences will be able to meet the actors after the show and purchase food and beverages at the theater bar and in the theater restaurant and coffee shop.
