The theatre "Melína Merkoúri" is part of the Town Hall of Ag. Dimítrios.
It is situated on the ground floor of Agios Dimitrios Town Hall. The refurbishment concerned the entire theater, foyer, stage, patio-balcony, and the first floor of the building. The main purpose of the project was to create an entire new, high standard theatre by demolishing all the existing constructions and build new soundproof interior walls, roofs, install new wooden floors, new seating, lightings and sound systems. The most important aspect of the project was to create a new high quality acoustic of the theatre space which changed the experience of the users and visitors. Soundproof membranes mounted on the walls and roofs, combined with new lighting helped to achieve this result. Furthermore, an entire new space was designed on the first floor for exhibitions and conferences to take place to.
