The first stop on any cinephile’s list should be Kinodvor, a lovely movie theater with a cozy cafe and a well-stocked shop, which is housed in an art nouveau building from the early 1920s. The atmospheric theater shows a wide variety of international indie hits and arthouse films.
Kinodvor is also responsible for some wonderful open-air cinema events during the warmer months. For a month every summer, Ljubljana Castle’s courtyard is turned into a movie theater for Film Under The Stars, a selection of the very best films from the past year and a couple of highly anticipated premieres. Some free screenings also take place at Kongresni trg.
