Sõprus Cinema Tallinn – Not only indie movies

Cinema

"Sõprus Cinema" is Tallinn's oldest. There you'll find modern Estonian as well as world art-house films and more. I just find it a pleasure visiting it.

Just around the corner from the Freedom Square you may find this classy Stalin's Empire style building from the 1950s with solid pillars and socialist society symbols. The Soviet deluxe entrance welcomes you to the casino and the city biggest and noisiest nightclub Hollywood. However, if you are not with a British stag party, skip it! The club is too big and too touristic and music is too much of radio hits.

This building also hosts the oldest Tallinn cinema with around 200 seats, where modern refurbishment was done by Markku Pätilä, the designer of many legendary Finish humorist Aki Kaurismäki's films. Here you will find not only a diverse public, modern Estonian and world art-house movies, oldie retrospectives in their original language with Estonian subtitles, but also some occasional music performances, stand up shows, lectures, parties and even live football match screenings (memories from the World Cup 2010 game England vs. Germany game still make me smirk).

It's a pleasure to watch films there, there's a bar in the screening room with a smoking area, no disturbing commercials and no popcorn. 50% discount on Wednesdays.

Hell Hunt – Probably the best pub in town

"Hell Hunt" is my go-to option when I just can't come up with any ideas of where to go for a drink or food in Tallinn. A chaotic, cheerful pub/restaurant.
