Gimle Kino – Sophisticated, old movie theater

Gimle Kino is originally from 1939 and one of my favorite movie theaters to visit in the city. Though you can go and see modern and current movies, the cinema also offers a nice variety of different and more unique movies, showing ballet performances and operas on the big screen. The technical conditions are at a modern level of which I would expect from a cinema today, but they have preserved the old and sophisticated feeling of a cinema theatre from the previous century.

They have both drink service inside and outside, and as one of the cinemas in Oslo that can actually offer a glass of wine along with the bucket of popcorn in, during the screening, it is a perfect place to discover a new, unknown director on a Sunday afternoon. Also, situated in the fashionable district of Frogner, I like to include a walk around the residential area before or after a show imaging how the city came into place and grew heavily in the early days of the 20th century. Gimle Kino gives me some hints of the historical footmarks in Oslo.
