The Guinness book thing impressed me, so I decided to go to a screening to boast with my ticket. The main theater room is disappointly small and new. The screen is small, if you have a seat in the back, it's like watching TV at home. It has the same feeling as many artsy cinemas across Europe, and if you want to experience that special thing about sitting in the oldest cinema of the world, you'll be disappointed. I'd pass it unless I were a cinema freak.

The Guiness book of Records states that this is the oldest cinemas 1909, not very big but shows very intresting movies. Downstairs there is a kiniarnia a coffe shop but next door is Koch one of the oldest coffee cafe shop in Szcsecin so its seems approriate. Besides the great cakes it has free WiFi.

It is a small movie theatre, which is the oldest in the world. It is small, has an operating snack bar, and interesting movie choice. It has been recently renovated and if one likes small spaces and a little history it is a place to go. Next to it there are a couple of coffee shops.

This place is a must see. The oldest cinema in the world (in one place non stop), the "kiniarnia" downstairs is a cafe with a cinema and is the pearl of the place. Every tourist must come here.
