Here the nice people of Café Kino are doing everything possible, so that picky cinephiles could feel at home. I am one and when a friend recommended Café Kino I was careful about what to expect. “It is a lovely normal bar, with a small cinema hall in the backroom” he said.
In the era of torrents I just stopped going to the movies; also because the commercial ones smell of popcorn and sweets, not to mention the programs. There are some exceptions and Café Kino is one of them. You don’t arrive late for the show, because you want to have a glass of wine and some of mini quiches from the menu before the screening. Then you simply get a refill and move into the back room where you take your seat on a very comfortable armchair. They publish monthly programs with a specific topic (like “movies about movies” theme for November) and there are between three (during the week) and up to five (weekends) shows throughout a whole day. Classics nobody wants to forget and there is never enough of them.
Apart from that, they organize sporadic round tables with experts and special projections and they give classes about the art of filmmaking and interpretation of moving pictures. To top it all – their best feature – you can hire the entire hall for you and your friends to watch a movie of your specific liking. My expectations fully fulfilled. My next birthday celebration perhaps?
