Redoing the loft the atmosphere of the old life was kept as much as possible, even so that the salt smell still lingers, but the main object was to provide ideal settings for showing quality Icelandic nature and documentary films.

Get off the beaten path and see one of the amazing nature films at this small and charming location in the old harbor. I hear the coffee next door at Cafe Haiti is outstanding and you could make it a day in this part of town. I saw the film covering Iceland's outstanding nature parks, then Chasing the Northern Lights,... More

Beautiful and educational movie. Really helps you to understand Iceland's geology (sthg which none of the local muse a in Reykjavik seem to be offering), and alsoto pick your ffavourite places to visit during your trip. The cinema is run by the director's wife , how more personal and fantastic can it get?

My partner and I visited the cinema on a Wednesday afternoon a few weeks ago after reading great reviews on trip advisor, and expected it to be a really pleasant little experience. There were positive Trip Advisor signs printed out on the notice board outside next to the show times, and they seemed to be proud of all of the... More

A lovely small cinema adjacent to Restaurant Hofnin. It is a cinema with film selections devoted to Iceland and its history. It is more like a beautiful bohemian sitting room with comfy chairs and sofas. The lovely lady who runs and owns it gave us a special presentation and as a bonus she was also able to give us a...

We passed this cinema by chance on our way to get a coffee. Whilst having our coffees we decided to check it out on TripAdvisor. The reviews were good so we popped in for the next showing. We had such a warm welcome from the sweet lady manager. We settled down in our comfy sofa seats to watch the movies.... More

This is this place to watch nature movies about Iceland. A great place to get some ideas about what you need to see in this amazing country! The theater is small and cozy. You can sprawl on a sofa or sit in a hard back chair. Just don't doze 'cause you'll miss some amazing facts!
