picture   We have always dreamed to run a place where we could simply do things we like. The recipe seemed easy: find an old place with character, pour some jazz into it, mix it with cinema (classic, of course!), add cosy furniture from the 60s and serve top-quality Italian espresso. It was our beloved idea that finally became true. We believe that you will like it, too.

picture   When we first saw that abandoned cinema in the middle of picturesque Vianden, we instantly fell in love. That was simply it! A 200-year old building, full of character and with huge potential. The renovation (or shall we say, reanimation) lasted over two years.

picture   Ancien Cinéma is a place where culture happens. From traditional painting exhibitions to avant-garde installations, from classic movies to independent productions, from Ella Fitzgerald to Norah Jones, it brings together an art gallery, old school cinema and a music club. Special programmes for children and an inspiring kids’ corner are also offered.
Top quality café bar with carefully selected beverages, finger food, home-made desserts and a shop with art and craft, books and photos make Ancien Cinéma an enjoyable experience.
The space can also be booked for private screenings, celebrations, conferences, etc.

picture   Ancien Cinéma has been thoroughly reconstructed. While we tried to preserve as much original elements as we could, today, you can enjoy a pleasingly refurbished place. Old limestone walls, original cinema seats and antique spotlights are accompanied by cosy sofas, vintage chairs and elegant tables from the 60s. Oversize film snapshots and framed black & white photos bring about sentiment of classic movies.
