"Cinemateca" Lisbon is a great place to go for a good "night at the movies". Here you can enjoy true cinema. Check the open air-terrace and the museum, too!

Ever since it was created in 1948, the Portuguese Cinematheque has been working as an institution dedicated to the preservation and promotion of Cinema. Cinemateca is located near the Liberdade Avenue in a 19th century well preserved building in Art Nouveau style with an impressive Neo-Mudejár atrium. It's a great place to go for a good "night at the movies". It is also a pleasant place for a coffee or a snack. Check the open-air terrace and enjoy the museum!

The museum is divided into 3 rooms: The Cupid Room, the Oak Room and the 6x2 Room. Here you'll find relics that tell the story of Cinema from magic lanterns to Lumiére projectors or other cinematographic objects like film reels, books and photographs.

Enjoy your favorite director's tribute at the cozy small cinema. Sessions start in the afternoon screening movies from great directors. There are also retrospectives of the most acclaimed film directors and actors. Fortunately, there are some cinemas in Lisbon where one can enjoy true cinema... like in here.

Forget blockbusters for a day and give these guys some credit... There's the musical and detailed Kubrick with "Shinning" and the satirical black comedy "Dr. Strangelove", and the king of suspense genre Hitchcock with "The birds". You won't be sorry. And... cut!

727 Bus – A journey through the real Lisbon

The "727 Bus" in Lisbon does a very long journey that connects two of my favorite neighborhoods: Alvalade and Belem. Who cares about hop-on/hop-off??
