Vallourec sponsored the complete restoration of the historical Cine Theatro of Belo Horizonte, in Minas Gerais State since 2007.

Designed in 1930 by architect Alberto Murgel, the Cine Theatro Brasil was the first Art-Deco style building in Belo Horizonte with French-inspired architecture and well known for its legendary facade.

For 5 years, this place was fully restored by Sidertube Foundation, the Vallourec Foundation in Brazil for a total investment of close to 53 million real (17 million euros).
Vallourec has designed the tubular structure of this new complex that covers 8,300 m² of built area, divided into seven floors. There are two theaters, comprising 1,200 seats, two floors with visual art exhibition halls; event rooms for up to 650 people, in addition to a restaurant, shops and areas for socializing.

Cine Theatro Brasil Vallourec reopens its doors this October 8th with the exhibition of the “War & Peace” paintings from the Brazilian artist Portinari coming from New York. Two panels of 140 m2 they were painted in the 1950’s to decorate the UN building. It becomes a cultural centre dedicated to artistic production and will provide all the people of Belo Horizonte a vicinity access to art and culture. Contributing to the construction of a fairer and more equitable future regarding social welfare in the neighboring communities is one of the main focuses of Vallourec activities.
