Kino “Bize” – Small and cozy cinema

There are people who eat fast food and there are people who go to restaurants or cook at home. Similarly there are people who go to a regular cinema to watch Hollywood “junk food” and people who don’t (but I am not saying that first ones are worse than the second ones. Some want to relax, some want some added value). In the big cinemas of Riga there are usually only few movies a month which are worth my time. If you are more like me then there are some opportunities in Riga. “Bize” is one of them.

If you want see something non-mainstream Kino “Bize” is for you. The cinema program includes challenging and independently produced movies. Movies which are not just simple entertainment, but make you think. Art films and documentary films. Most of them received awards at different film festivals.

Here you will not see crowds of people. Bize is small, just 70 seats. And the location is something you would never expect for a cinema. On the first floor of an old residential house (enter the building’s yard, turn right and push button no 2 to enter). 

Kino Bize holds two to three screenings every day. Movies are shown in original language with subtitles. Before a film session you can have cup of tea (sorry guys no popcorn in this cinema!) in the cafeteria.
