we were advised to watch Riga story. It was rather interesting experience, and good place to spend tim in
First of all, it's not a palace, it's a movie theater. For $10, you can watch a 30 minute movie in English at 10 am, noon and 2 pm. The movie is ordinary, heavy on self-promotion of the city, and overpriced at $10. On the other hand, they have toilets and you can be minimally entertained sitting down for half... More
This is just a unique place in terms of gethering together architecture and cinema. It has a huge amphitheter hall and a balcony. It feels really unusual to watch a moder movie in such a historical atmosphere. Really romantic place.

It doesn't show a wide variety of movies, and not necessarily the newest blockbusters, but nevertheless it was a great place to... More
