Kino Europa is Zagreb's oldest and perhaps best loved independent cinema, not least because it holds a large bar and usually full terrace where you can spot students, arty types, bohemians and regular daytime coffee drinkers. The cinema was built in 1924 and opened on 8 April 1925 with Fritz Lang’s Die Niebelungen and local film Dalmatia, Land of Sun.The City of Zagreb bought the cinema in October 2007 after a public campaign and its management was entrusted to Zagreb Film Festival, with the goal of making this cinema the regional centre of film and film art.
Offering diverse and well thought-out movies, independent cinemas can be the place to catch up on some of the best films made around the world or the place to introduce a friend or date to one of your most cherished old classics. Luckily, Zagreb has a crop of art house cinemas showing the best of world and independent movies - with many screened in English. Here's where to find them.
