Sadly, Colosseum, the biggest THX cinema in the world (or something like that) has become bad. The focus on 3D-movies on such a big screen makes it a bad place to watch movies. Only if you're lucky enough to watch the movies in the middle area it is actually OK to watch the movies here. You're getting sound echoes on the side arease, in the front the screen is horribly large and in the back you can't hear the sound due to all the popcorn chewing in front of you. Basically: It's a lot of great cinemas in Oslo, but this is not one of them.

Enough said. If you're in Oslo and you're sick of looking at tourist sites, get a ticket to see a movie and choose Colosseum. Big screen, excellent sound, and almost no matter where you sit, you'll be able to see the entire screen, due to the big screen, the curvature and the big room itself. The best sound and picture in Oslo!

And before you go to watch the movie, take a walk around the Majorstuen Area (where Colosseum is located). You'll end up seeing a lot of interesting streets, cafés and locations...

It's also practically next door to the Frognerparken and Vigelandsparken (with all the funny sculptures - Norway's most visited tourist attraction), in case you feel touristy after all ;)

Saw "The Wolf of Wall Street" in this cinema. While the film left a lot of room for improvement, the cinema was a pleasure to visit.

I live close by, I go here to see movies, but its not an attraction unless you are very interested in a specific form of architecture. I would not recommend spending time to go see it as a form of attraction unless theres a movie you want to catch.
