Trondheim Circus

Circus, former circus building in Prinsens gate 2a, later cinema hall on the corner of Prince Street and Architect Christie Street, south of the World Theater and the Film Theater.
The property was originally an undeveloped parsley of a large property belonging to merchant Johan Eduard Ryjord, and from 1878 brewery E.C.Dahl. Dahl’s deathboat sold this parish in 1886 to builder Hans Oscar Fredrik Kunig. The building was built in 1887, architect was Johan Fredrik Kunig. The building was used as a venue for traveling circus ensembles until 1897, when it was taken over by the Salvation Army as a meeting room. The first fishing exhibition in Trondheim was held in Circus in 1887.

The Salvation Army sold the building in 1909 to a consortium led by cinema director Olav P. Skjevlo, who used it as a local for his cinema Cinema Theater.

The student community in Trondhjem bought Circus in 1912, but the kinodrift continued on business days, but the students used it on Saturday nights. From 1917, it was used as a place for student suits.

The economy was strained and the Student Society sold to the municipality of Trondheim in 1918, but rented the building until 1927 when the community’s own house at Elgeseter was completed. On October 1, there was a dismissal meeting in Circus under the direction of Frode Rinnan.

The municipality continued to use the venue as a cinema until 1930. The house was seized by Germans during World War II and used as warehouses. The house was after the war in bad condition and was demolished in 1951 to get space for a parking lot.
