Cinema House is located in Sofia City Center and is one of the oldest and last few standing art-house movie theaters in the Bulgarian capital, a recognised member of the Europa Cinemas network. Dom na kinoto is one of the few that has survived the economically turbulent 1990s without permanently shutting its doors. Recognising the fact that Cinema House had been once positioned at the heart of historical and cultural events – e.g. in 1989-1990 it served as the headquarters of the free speech and democracy club, as well as “safe-house” for students/creatives persecuted by the socialist authorities’ police force – we would like to once again bring Cinema House to the forefront of Sofia’s cultural and social life. We have defined a new slogan, “Cinema House, more than a cinema” and, as of October 2015, have been developing a re-branding strategy – aimed not only at new audience attraction, but also audience retention. We cannot afford to rely on merely screening films anymore; Cinema House deserves to be a true hub of all things creative, serving as a platform, a social hangout, a springboard for new ventures/projects, firmly integrated in the community.

The Cinema House is not the typical old cinema. It really makes a difference in the last years by screening alternative movies, taking part in festivals and supporting different environmental causes through pure cinema. Definitely worth following them for any new title popping out. Costa...More
