The selection of cinemas in Stockholm is pretty scarce – there’s mainly one company that dominates the market and has the majority of all theaters. Therefore it can be challenging to find an alternative and independent film in the city. However, there is a few couple of exceptions, and one of my all time favorites is the movie theater Sture. It’s centrally located just minutes away from the commercial center of Stureplan.
Bio Sture is a beautiful theater built in the 1920′s with much of its old décor still intact. It has three salons, with super comfortable seats and really high screen and sound standards. The theater is connected to the Swedish Film Institute, which promotes Swedish film, so the theater hosts a lot of film festivals and special events. It’s also one of two venues hosting the Swedish cinematheque.
Since it’s a true film lover’s hangout, there are not a lot of snacks to pick up at the concession stand but it has a cute café called Gunvor Kafé. The café only has a couple of tables and a small collection of homemade cakes and sandwiches but it’s a great way to rewind before the film.
