Located on the Pest side of the city. This opened on 4th November 1899 as a live theatre, it had started to screen films from 1900 as part of the programme. From 23rd December 1916 it was operating as a full time cinema. From 1930 it was operated by Ufa and later from 1945 began screening films from Sovexport. Today this magnificent building is well maintained and screens first run movies as the Urania Nemzeti Filmszinhaz (Urania National Filmhouse).
The original 700 seat auditorium and foyer spaces are intact with their elaborate Moorish style decorations. Recently two small screens have been added, without destroying original features.
