Artis is now a 7-year-old cinema theatre celebrating its birthday in October 2016. In 2013, Artis received the Best Programming Award from Europa Cinemas. In 2015 we had a record year of visitors due to good communication with our different target groups, excellent planning strategy and a wide selection of films to choose from.
The 181 and 72-seats cinema halls primarily screen European films in their regular programming, special film events and film weeks. Our visitors vary from very small children to seniors. Artis is open throughout the year and people have come to trust our taste in films.
We work with different Embassies, cultural organizations, schools, kindergartens and of course local distributors. Also very important in our programming are Estonian feature films and documentaries which are doing better and better each year.
We are especially proud of our Senior Screenings which have been a big part of our programme from the very beginning. Films for our more mature guests take place twice a week in the mornings, both for Estonian and Russian viewers. Before the film we introduce a special guest connected to the film’s subject.
Young audiences come to our cinema mostly for the school screenings which are accompanied by educational material for later use in the classroom. The films we screen for schools are suitable for specific ages and the themes are connected to the school programme.
We are happy to work with European films, represent different cultures and promote tolerance.
