Cirkó Gejzír – The smallest cinema in Europe

There are fewer and fewer art cinema houses (around ten remaining) in Budapest from year to year, knowing the tough survivals is useful knowledge.

Cirkó still stands and regards itself as the smallest art cinema in Europe since the late 90’s. Nevertheless, it is roomy enough for a bike shed and a restful foreground, where you can sip your welcome tea in an armchair until the film gets started.

To me Cirkó is like and old neighbor who I have never talked to, but who has seen some puzzles of my life: happy and awkward dates, the movies I chose and the way I reacted to them.

The cinema offers international art movies, topics like human rights, the rights of homosexuals, minorities as well as immigrants are in its narrow focus. Just like other movie theaters, Cirkó is home to movie festivals, events and exhibitions.

Considering that the cinema is only a few steps away from Margaret Bridge, it is also an ideal spot to go for a romantic walk from.

Cirkó is open every day, so you can go there even on Christmas Eve if you like.
There are happy hours on Mondays and Tuesdays, also their season ticket is a reasonable deal.
