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.

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). The film was amazing as well as Informative. We were given a choice of films as we were the only ones there and saw 'The Birth Of An... More

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

The movie shown in this cozy little theater with few seats was beautiful! The screen is large and the sound is good. The content of the movie is what we enjoyed the most- arial views of Icelandic glaciers and geography, nicely described and beautifully shot. Very picturesque and unique experience in Iceland. Lasts not more than half an hour-a nice... More

Thank you very much for your good review. We are very glad to hear that you liked our film. It sounds like you saw the new one about Vatnajökull National Park, which is such a beautiful area that it is hard not to make a good film about it. The filmmaker spent couple of years filming, as well as using... More
