The historic and beautiful house in the heart of Reykjavik, the Old Cinema, is currently undergoing a renewal of life. Extensive construction work is now underway to refine all facilities that will serve modern needs while retaining original design and dignity. Thus, the usefulness of the Old Cinema will greatly increase as the possibilities for use become almost endless.


The house can be a conference hall, concert venue, theater, banquet hall, movie theater or almost anything that people think. For the first time there will also be a working café in the Old Cinema, but on the third floor of the house is the so-called Petersen Suite, where Peter Petersen lived, who was a cinema manager and had the house built under his business. In the Petersen suite there will be a working café and bar, but there are also spaces suitable for smaller meetings and banquets.
