Terrific cultural space ; reserve a private screening room.
Jan 2019 • Couples
On a cold, rainy SCLC day, there's no better place to be than in one of the two private screening rooms, watching a movie of your choice from the 100's available. You can consult Kinoki's Facebook page to get information on daily/weekly public sceenings of other films, many of which are documentaries on regional issues.
The upstairs attractive restaurant offers decent pizzas and stuffed potatoes, but one of the the night's we were there, the looped, unending repetetive pair of movie trailers projected, with bad sound, onto a large screen in the otherwise pleasant dining area drove us mad.

We came to the Cinema because the Restaurant on the roof looked very comfy. We both had baked potatoes and they were Great! Also, they have a menu only for tea, the herbal chai is super tasty!

Every film you always wanted to see
Apr 2018 • Family
Where else can you find a catalogue of classic films from all over the world, choose something you have always wanted to see or experiment with something totally out of your orbit, then sit in a comfortable livingroom-style sofa or armchair with a group of family or friends, each with a tray of delicious, original food on their lap and enjoy your evening? On weekdays, 3 different rooms are available for these private showings. Kinoki also features special showings for the public on weekends, of films with particular popular or local appeal or relevance.

Interesting
Apr 2018 • Solo
I went on a Monday night for a "movie. The cost is 30 Pesos. The cinema is small, old and cute. It was supposed to be a screening related to Freud according to the schedule. It was an old documentary of BBC of poor quality that would be able to watch on Youtube surely. I was the only one in the room. It was an interesting experience.

Worth a visit
Apr 2018 • Friends
Worth a visit, especially if you are stuck for something to do. You can choose to hire a a room between friends for 250$ and choose your film or go to a scheduled screening for 30$.
A small quaint little theatre with restaurant /cafe attached, where you can watch films or documentaries. Recommend the documentary on the Zapatista movement to give you an insight into Chiapas.

Relaxing atmosphere, tasty food
Apr 2017 • Friends
As a vegan, Kinoki became one of my go-to spots in San Cris. They offered vegan options and were willing to veganize requests. The tea is amazing and I'm not really a tea drinker. Wonderful smoothies, too! The menu is large, but not overwhelming. Wonderful quality food and so tasty!
The staff is super, the atmosphere is relaxing, but yet upbeat. I enjoyed the balcony seating in order to watch the happenings on the vibrant streets below.
They are a film bar, so separate rooms show films. Most are in Spanish, but some are translated in English via subtitles. The films generally show social justice issues.
I am going to SCC again soon and will definitely be headed back to Kinoki!

Great for movies, especially when it's cold outside
Feb 2017 • Couples
We went to several of Kinoki's movies during our stay in San Cris. Theater fine, though seats small for overweight people like us. They also have small theaters with huge recliner chairs that one can rent for a higher price and select the movie to be seen. We never ate at Kinoki because at night it is very loud, usually crowded. We were in once in mid-afternoon with questions about a movie, and it was much calmer. Definitely a spot for the young, or for older folks to go in mid-afternoon.

Great place to select and watch a movie!
Jan 2017 • Couples
Kinoki has a huge notebook of international films to choose from. One can rent the film of your choice and either the deluxe seat viewing room (200 pesos pesos​) or the standard theater seat vieqing roomm (200 pesos). What a deal! The hard part is selecting one film from the hundreds of films available, including many documentaries on relevant local topics.

Kinoki also shows 2 films a day in a larger viewing area.

The restaurant, best during the day as it gets packed at night, is very pretty, with a nnice rooftop view, and often has young folks working on their computers, hunched over a tissane. The fabulous cheesecake is truly a NYC creamy cheesecake!
