“Art Cinema is the only cinema in the country to actually understand that the proverbial silver screen is also the perfect place for digital games. And so it helps us game enthusiasts serve original content in the most beautiful package year-round. Art Cinema is about love.”

Kuba Špiřík
commander of the Gamer Pie festival

“We’ve been cooperating with Art Cinema for a long time on the Bonjour Brno festival and screenings of French and francophone cinematography. Thanks to its perfectly balanced choice of films, the audience at Art Cinema can enjoy both new films and pieces of art for true film enthusiasts.”

Jiří Votava
director of Alliance Française in Brno

“The Mezipatra Festival has been cooperating with Art Cinema for as long as we can remember; the premises of the cinema are frequented during the entire festival, its halls hold screenings, ceremonies, and parties, its Black Hole (Černá díra) basement is ideal for exhibitions, and the café is a great venue for off-program events. We very much appreciate its forthcoming management team and excellent communication, and we’re looking forward to our cooperation in the years to come. Thank you!”

“The Future Gate Sci-Fi Film Festival has been cooperating with Art Cinema since 2015, and it’s planning on enjoying this cooperation for years to come. Art Cinema has become a main venue for our festival and has helped us become more popular in Brno. The cinema is well equipped and does a good job of communicating with visitors. It’s been upgraded during the reconstruction, which is something new audiences and event organizers alike are sure to enjoy.”

directors of Future Gate Sci-Fi Film Festival

“We’re so happy to have such an enlightened cinema here that isn’t afraid to do things differently. Art Cinema likes to go beyond cinematography and allows the fans of games and gaming art to enjoy watching their passion on the big screen. And we’re glad to be a part of it.”

“Our team at the Moravian Gallery always looks forward to cooperating with Art Cinema, not only because of its incredibly helpful and friendly team but also their thorough and playful approach to the projects. We’re glad to see them keep contributing to the supporting program of the gallery, actively improving the quality of culture in Brno.”
