Kefalos Municipal Theatre

The Kefalos Municipal Theatre stands as a prominent symbol in the town, despite its departure from traditional architectural styles. Its significance lies in its role as a venue for various cultural events that celebrate Kefalonian heritage.

While the memory of the old Kefalos Theatre, which once graced this location, lives on among the older generation, it tragically fell victim to bombing during WWII and eventually succumbed to the earthquakes of 1953. Fond recollections remain of a bygone era when this theatre hosted captivating operas, enriching the cultural fabric of the community.

Today, the theatre boasts modern amenities and has undergone periodic renovations. Originally envisioned under Mayor Kosmetatos with plans drafted in 1979, its construction faced delays due to financial constraints, finally reaching completion in 1994.
