Delightful arthouse cinema just off the Av. de Liberdade. Tickets are very cheap. Good rooftop bar to grab a drink before a screening. You can also browse a small collection of film artifacts (Hollywood headshots, old cameras, etc.)

This is a great arthouse cinema with an interesting, varied selection of films (lots of foreign films, subtitled in Portuguese), bargain ticket prices, exhibitions and a nice cafe with outside terrace and bookshop.

We stayed at the Ibis hotel nearby and were very happy to discover this bar! It's located on top of the Cinemateca but you can enter it without buying a ticket. Mostly locals, good atmosphere, friendly staff, honest food, good value. In summertime there's a rooftop terrace.

This lovely cinema has an excellent history of Portuguese cinema exhibition, a cafe and two very comfortable screens. The program is a wonderful mix of old and new films from all over through world.
