The Cinema at Old Harbour Village No. 2 is located in the old harbour area of Reykjavik in the first of the three turquoise former fishermen's huts - so if you come back from your (almost compulsory) whale watching trip and have an hour or so left, this is the perfect location to learn a bit more about the interesting island you're obviously spending your vacation on. It is not a big cinema, but has a unique atmosphere - very cozy and homey with its brown leather couch and armchairs. You can even get your popcorn and refreshments there!
The movies shown are not the usual blockbusters, but elaborate films about typical Icelandic landmarks such as volcanoes, glaciers, waterfalls and the famous Northern Lights. Their slogan is "Films shown daily according to schedule - or by arrangement". When we were there we almost got to 'choose from the menu' which movies we'd like to see (most of them are available in English, some even in German).
The owner (who actually also is the maker of the movies) and his family are very friendly and helpful with explanations to the movies and exhibits on display on one of the side walls.
If you've been stuck somewhere in Europe during the 2010 eruption of Eyjafjallajökull, this place is a MUST! :-)
