We (my wife and I) visited this cinema on the last Sunday in April, which was a beautiful sunny day. We wanted to learn more about Iceland's landscape and about its volcanoes and the three films available here (there are more in the summer) treated these subjects. The films were fantastic, giving you an up-close view of the famous 2010 eruption of the Eyjafjallajokul volcano as well as the world-famous Hekla eruptions. We also got a wonderful sense of how Iceland was formed and why its landscapes are so varied and unique. The lovely woman who manages the cinema is the wife of the filmmaker, so she has a good deal of insider information (she is also a professional tour guide). She gave us lots of advice on places to stop on our day-trips. The cinema has rocks from different parts of Iceland (and the world), which enticed us to visit some of those places to get our own samples.
The cinema (on the second floor) has a very homely feel to it, which is in keeping with the focus on nature, not commercialized attractions. The lovely manager offered us cold water at no charge and there were also snacks for sale.
The footage that you will see on the films here, combined with the warm welcome you will receive, make this cinema a MUST-VISIT for anyone visiting Reykjavik. This is not merely a "let's find something to do to escape the rain" sort of place. (The cinema is right near the harbor and we got some beautiful outdoor pictures on the sunny day that we were here.) We look forward to coming back on our next visit to Iceland.
