Projection screen, 120m2. Cinema with a capacity of 513 seats.


Designed capacity is of 550 seats. Projection booth has installed all classic projection technology i.e. 16mm, 35mm (2x), 70mm (2x) and Christie digital projector. On a perfect tuning our technology and program we cooperate with foreign friends – Orpheum Lichtspiele Schönberg, Kinomuseum Berlin and Mikula Servis Switzerland. Hardware is not only in perfect technical condition, but all improving go beyond the original technology. We are so prepared for film copies, which, due to the effects of the ravages of time are not perfect. Projectors UM 70/35 we have adapted for screening shrink copies, in the sound system we added noise suppression for audio records without Dolby. Furthermore, we have installed Dolby A or Dolby SR or other audio systems for 70 mm films having e.g. the low bass frequencies in a particular track or have stereo sound effects. All recordings are played as they were technically worked on the film copy, but through modern sound processor and speakers.


We offer to visitors to the festival eating in our two restaurants located in the complex of CENTRUM PANORAMA with rich selection of pizzas, pastas, meat and vegetarian dishes. The menu can be found here. Link to the registration form can be found at the end of the invitation.


Our philosophy is to offer movies that are very rare on similar 70 mm shows. Of course, we can never be quite sure, if anyone has ever organize some screenings alone outside regular festivals, but about many films we failed to get the information that they would have been in recent years played somewhere.

Proč k nám?

Panoramatické plátno subjektivně působí při projekci širokoúhlého filmu až monumentálním dojmem, který nezažijeme v žádném ze současných ale ani bývalých pražských kin, včetně tolik vzpomínané legendární Alfy na Václavském náměstí. Celý objekt navíc vyzařuje velmi příjemnou atmosféru.

Stručně řečeno: “Cítíte se zde jako v klasickém kině.

Projekt digitalizace Kina Centrum Panorama Varnsdorf dle standartu DCI podpořili : Státní fond České republiky pro podporu a rozvoj české kinematografie a Město Varsndorf.
