Kinos Mikro and MikrOFFala

In Krakow, Poland, the Kino Mikro is tucked under two apartment blocks and reached via a tunnel entrance under one of them. It has one of the smallest foyers in the city, with just enough room for a pay desk and self-serve refreshment shelf.

The main auditorium was initially a screening room for the Communist militia when they moved into the building in the 1950’s.

On 7th April 1984 it opened as the Film Club Mikro, one of the first places to show independent films as the Communist regime lost its grip on Poland and its permitted film fare. The Kinos Mikro is close to the University and is well patronised by students.

The main auditorium seats 121, and has been joined by the MikrOFFala lounge, which seats just 13 on sofas, armchairs and dining chairs, making it the most intimate screen in the city.

The cinema has a lively programme with seasons, festivals and Q&A sessions.
