The popular Kalk Bay Theatre in Cape Town has closed its doors permanently.
In a statement released, the theatre revealed that with the ongoing building and staffing costs, and no income since our doors closed, they could not stay afloat.
“We burned the midnight oil for weeks trying to come up with clever solutions, bearing in mind that there was little prospect of reopening before some time in 2021, but the brick wall in front of us was impenetrable,” expressed the theatre.
“The devastating end result is that we had to terminate the lease with our landlord, and our running of the Kalk Bay Theatre and Restaurant.”
The theatre added that this was, however, not the end of the book just a closing of one chapter.
“We have every intention of finding another space that we can call our own to continue to entertain you as soon as we possibly can.”
