“The oldest cinema in the world”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012

It is a small movie theatre, which is the oldest in the world. It is small, has an operating snack bar, and interesting movie choice. It has been recently renovated and if one likes small spaces and a little history it is a place to go. Next to it there are a couple of coffee shops.

“Must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2012

This place is a must see. The oldest cinema in the world (in one place non stop), the "kiniarnia" downstairs is a cafe with a cinema and is the pearl of the place. Every tourist must come here.

“The world oldest movie theater is in Szczecin!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2010

I've been to Pionier Cinema on numerous occasions and it's a tiny but lovely and very unique movie theater. The oldest still operating cinema in Europe, opened in 1909, was completely re-furbished and modernized in 2002 and yet it managed not to lose its charm. You can either watch your movie in a small but comfortable big-screen room or in a very unusual 'cine-cafe' room while sitting at a cafe table, with the projector just on top of the bar. Pionier usually offers all sorts of movies, however specializes in european and more ambitious films you probably wouldn't be able to watch anywhere else in Szczecin. It might not seem like a major attraction but definitely worth a look and a must-do for all film-lovers out there.
