Kfar Saba city emblem Beit Hapoalim - Amal Cinema
The building, designed in the style of the period - the international style, was built in 1937 by the architect Arie Sharon. The building was established as the Kfar Saba Workers’ House and was intended in advance to be used as a cinema and cultural center. The Histadrut Hapoalim, led by Pinchas Sapir, sought to provide a permanent home for action in the field of education and culture for the worker and the new immigrant.
Until this building was erected, two cultural institutions operated in the colony: the "Labor Club" and the "Workers’ House." The population of the colony grew and the existing workers’ house was too narrow to accommodate all the cultural needs of the colony, and it was decided to build a new building. The construction of the new "Beit Hapoalim", Amal Cinema, was the culmination of the fulfillment of the workers’ dream in the colony. For this purpose, external donations were collected and it was determined that every worker in the colony would donate a brick and a working day. The building erected was the center of the cultural life of the colony and later of the city.
In July 2002, cinema ceased to function.
Another figure associated with the building was the garden planner Lipa Yahalom, who designed the garden that "envelops" the cultural center.
