Jengo's Playhouse

Jengo's Playhouse is a pastel painted micro-cinema and central headquarters for the Cucalorus Film Festival. This quirky hot-spot is a multi-media arts facility located on 815 Princess St. in downtown Wilmington, North Carolina. An ingeniously redeveloped prefab metal building nestled in the city's historic district, Jengo's is one of six buildings belonging to a burgeoning artistic compound located in Wilmington's Soda Pop District, an area known for a scattered collection of creative entrepreneurs - from the homebaked Folks Cafe to the agricultural invention machine The Full Belly Project. Just down the block lies the old Coca-Cola Bottling Factory, giving the district it's uniquely appropriate nickname.

Jengo's Playhouse contains six working artist studios occupied by filmmakers, painters, sculptors and anchored by the headquarters of the Cucalorus Film Festival. The centerpiece of the facility is a 52-seat micro-cinema used by local filmmakers for private premiers and by many local non-profits as a meeting space and alternative venue.
