We are delighted to inform you about the renovation and opening of the most artistically oriented cinema hall in Tbilisi. Historically, for many decades the “Cinema House” had been playing a great role in the popularization not only the Georgian and European cinema, but the world cinema with high artistic value.Our cinema hall had greatly contributed to the refined taste of dedicated Georgian cinephiles, as it used to offer non-commercial, independent, sometimes even banned films by the renowned film directors. Oriented on screening of the art-house films, the “Cinema House” is unique among Georgian cinema halls, as no other similar place exists today. We would like to ask for your support and collaboration in this process.
Georgian Film Academy’s aim is to enhance the promotion of the best traditions of Georgian, European and world cinema by spotlighting a film’s artistic qualities. Nowadays, we have managed to renew the cinema hall with 92 new seats and can provide cutting edge cinematic experience. In order to improve quality of the picture, we have updated digital equipment and the screen. We are very excited to announce that cinema hall is open now and is ready to receive guests. Our goal is to create alternative space for film lovers and propose a solid cultural platform in order to meet our audience’s expectations.
