My friend from Australia stayed at my place for a week and when I was telling her what to do in Ljubljana, I mentioned 2 art cinemas. She was really surprised that a small city like Ljubljana has 2 of them and Melbourne has none. I guess that we are lucky and I’m really glad, that I can spend some nice evenings in nice old cinemas with interior from the 30′s.
So those 2 cinemas are Kinoteka and Kinodvor, both in the center and really close to each other. I will present the first one to you. I won’t say that it’s better but it sure has more movies on the program and it’s a bit cheaper.
Kinoteka is located on the Miklosiceva Street, somewhere in the middle between the train station and Preseren square. They show movies from Europe mostly, but also from other parts of the world, like Japan or, of course, America, but never too commercial. You can find different genres, from dramas to black comedies and thrillers. Usually they show 2 films per day and I think you can see each film only once, so be careful not to miss your favorite movie on the big screen!
