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.

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!

Rainy day in Reykjavik? Tired of watching whales and puffins? Come inside this little attic cinema, take a seat or nestle yourself in the sofa, order a cup (or a whole kettle) of coffee and watch stunning movies about the natural forces that shape Iceland. And have a chat with the host afterwards, you won't regret it. We heartily recommend... More

Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review about your visit to The Cinema. It continues to rain this summer so your encouragement to other visitors to come and enjoy Icelandic nature indoors on such days is very much appreciated. Hope to see you again - The Cinema Staff More

Found it! On the second floor, over Cafe Haiti, in a turquoise building down by the Old Harbor. We went to the 2pm show-a double feature of the newest volcano films. The day's shows are posted on the exterior wall, by the door. 2 tickets were $24.11 US. It is not " going to the movies" by suburban standards. Rather,... More

I loved the movies here at cinema 2. As I had already travelled around iceland was so interesting to see the stories of the two eruptions - the historical footage in the Vestmannaeyjar Islands documentary was amazing. Stunning footage of the 2010 Eyjafjallajokull eruption - awesome power.

We viewed two great short films (approx. 1 hour) which captured the early history of Iceland and the more recent volcanic activities. Really great photography, and very good narration. Fun, small, comfortable environment. Definitely worth seeing!

Tucked away in the Old Harbour in Reykjavik is a tiny little cinema. We went in April 2014 and only 3 of us there. It's not too expensive (around £7/8 for adults).

Not only were the films very interesting and informative ....and the setting was simply amazing. What summed it up for us was that the owner opened the cinema just for us as we had mixed up our times!! What a thing to do, a must visit if you are in Reykjavik. Ben & Anita x
