Owner description: The Cinema at Old Harbour Village No2 is located in the loft of an old fishermen´s dwellings, where the fishermen used to mend their nets, tar their boats, salt their fish and overnight in bed bunks. 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. By reading the reviews of our vistors on The Trip Advisor pages it seems that we are having success ...

This is such a nice place to visit after a day of sightseeing. It is really unusual. The films seemed to show at 4, 5 & 6pm (when we were there) and the one we watched was interesting. I must admit to falling asleep for a few minutes but that was a reflection on the comfort of the chairs rather... More

Dear Lauren, we are glad you found your visit to us added to your journey in Iceland. The weather can be so unpredictable in winter and so bad that no excursions can be taken; then at least one can enjoy Icelandic nature indoors in our home like cinema, as you say. Thank you for taking the time to write a... More

This cinema is unique! Very relaxed with proper sofa's and comfortable chairs. The lady that works there is very nice and enjoys giving you lots of advice and tips. Much better to go to her than any of the very many visitors centres in Reykjavik. We enjoyed the movie and the surroundings. If you have the time, do it!

Visited after seeing reviewed on here. Spent an hour and £7 here, watched a film about volcanoes and eventually extracted directions to nearby restaurant. Made a pleasant break to our day.

Thank you very much for coming to The Cinema! We are happy to hear that the visit fitted nicely in with your program. If you only saw a film about volcanoes than you missed out, so we hope you will have a chance to come again and see the films about the northern lights, the national parks and more. Welcome,...

Tiny cinema with perhaps seating for a dozen in the attic of one of the classic buildings in the old harbour area. Much fun, fab films. Reasonably-priced by local standards. If, like us, you can't find the time to get out to too many volcanoes or to see the northern lights, this a great option.

We visited Cinema No2 after reading reviews on tripadvisor and were glad we did! The lady was very friendly and explained some of the background to the cinema. It's a really relaxed atmosphere (there were only 4 of us watching the film), the film was excellent and informative (makes you want to explore so much more of Iceland!) and it's... More

Cosy little cinema with great films. While the wether was very very cold, windy and rainy we couldn't really enjoy the sites ourselves, it was a pleasure to have this opportunity.

Hi Trudy, thank you for your good review! We are very glad that you could at least enjoy Icelandic nature through our films and hope they make you want to come back during the summer months, when you can travel all around the country and even enjoy 24 hour daylight at the same time.

Cinema is like visiting someone's front room, to view something special. That's what we did. It was a very special experience and one I would recommend. Having spent the day on the Golden Circle tour, it was a great - and informative - way to unwind. Nice ambience, comfortable, and the friendly film-maker himself was on hand, too. It really... More
