ARS cinema in Krakow

Anyone ever been to the ARS cinema (I think this is what it is called) in Krakow centre before? Went there for the first time the other day. What a cool place this is. I love all the new multiplex cinemas but it as nice to watch a movie in an old cinema. Took me back to when I when I was younger. Anyway, just wanted to say that if you haven't been, it's definately worth going just to enjoy a bit of nostalgia.

where in the centre is it? I don't know Krakow yet and it would be a nice change to the modern cinemas...

Be careful when you choose which screen you go for, in this cinema. Each one has a specific name. The "Salon" and "Kiniarnia" awfully suck. Poorest theaters and technology I ever saw and, sorry, it was better when I was projecting 16mm films myself at home a few years ago. I don't usually like multiplex because they have no personality and I'm not interested in films that usually play there, but the Ars has awful rooms. In the future, I will only go to their bigger screens.

In the same style of cinema, it seems to me that Kino Pod Baranami on the main square is better. But my favourite screen in Krakow is screen #1 at the Kijów. THAT is what I call a cinema. Their screen #2 however sucks as much as the smaller screens at Ars.

I'm a huge fan of ARS - even the crappy little screens where you sit in IKEA chairs.

I don't mind the IKEA seats. I just can't stand breaking my neck by looking upwards at the screen of the "Salon" or having the impression of being in a student bar in the "Kiniarnia".

As far as cinematic experiences go, ARS is not the best but it has a certain charm. I like the fact the projection equipment is a bit dated & cranky and you sit on Ikea chairs. It's different and I liked it.
