Kijów Centrum – The first modern cinema in Krakow

A representative building just next to the most crowded street in Krakow – Three “Soothsayers” Avenue. This is Kino Kijów – the first wide-screen cinema in Krakow. It was built in the early 60s and it has been the biggest and the most modern cinema in our beautiful city for a few decades. Concave screen and stereophonic quality of sound were an unimaginable innovation at the time it was built!

For a long time, it hosted Krakow’s Festival of Documentary and Short films. During communism, it showed mostly Russian films. Nowadays, Kijów.Centrum is a cultural center. After some hard times (when multiplex businesses started growing and more modern cinemas were opened in Krakow), the owners finally found a way to revitalize it.

It is now not only a cinema, but also a spot which organizes concerts, festivals and different types of events. Apart from one big cinema hall, you’ll find a very nice cafe and a pub with a small screen, where less popular films are shown. For me, this is a nice place to watch a film – it’s located very close to my place and I pass by it almost everyday. From time to time, I also sit in the café on the first floor, watching people walk along the loudest and most crowded street in Krakow.
