Where: Margaretenstraße 78, 1050
We adore this cinema and it’s old-school charm. Entering the Filmcasino, you’re thrown back into the 50s or 60s. The entire interior, from the facade of the ticket counter and bar, to the lighting and the furniture – everything is a big throwback to the good old movie theatres we’ve never been to, but know from the movies. Filmcasino takes care of the film buffs craving art-house, indie, or international cinema that is hard-to-find in other cinemas in Vienna. European and Asian documentaries, short films, and independent productions are all common in the programme, in their original versions and mostly with subtitles (with most international films screened with English subtitles). It’s also where the Latin American film festival is hosted every year.
Fun fact: twice a year the Filmcasino hosts the /Slash film-festival, which celebrates international B-grade horror movies, or fantastic films. Perfect for all the lovers of gore, or quirky cinema that stretches the imagination!
Shotimes: see, here.
