Opened in 1913, ARTA cinema is one of the oldest cinemas in the region that is still active today.

After an extensive restoration and revitalization process initiated in 2012, ARTA has become a significant cultural hub for the local community, a catalyst for the cultural and independent sector.

At Cinema ARTA we promote cultural events, where people of different ages and interests meet in an environment that encourages communication, tolerance and understanding. We create cultural experiences that unite, inspire and become meaningful to the participants.

The activities follow three main directions:

  • The main program dedicated to contemporary cinema: art-house films, independent films and documentaries.
  • A curated program of multidisciplinary events, which includes concerts, exhibitions, workshops and conferences.
  • The educational program which wishes to create a safe space, where young audiences can learn, develop and express themselves freely.


Our mission is to promote culture and diversity, through the interaction between different art forms and people. The impact of culture on social and urban development being essential, we wish to create an interdisciplinary platform that contributes to the social and cultural life of the city.
