The Uránia National Film Theatre is unique among Hungarian cinemas as it is the only national film and cultural centre operating as an institute It is the film profession’s counterpart of the National Theatre and the Opera House, of which most important task is to present and show the treasures of contemporary and classical film art as well as organising film clubs, national and international film festivals, and other events (first nights).

Over the past years, besides films, HD broadcasts have also become a steady part of our programme. We bring you right into the heart of Budapest, into the Secession-Moor splendour of the Europa Nostra award-winning monumental Film Theatre the programme of the world’s prestigious art institutions, inter alia, the superb productions of the New York Metropolitan Opera, the Moscow Bolsoj Ballet, the Saint Petersburg Mariinsky Theatre, the London Royal Opera House, the National Theatre, and Shakespeare’s Globe, where, thanks to our digital HD projectors and the sound system upgraded in the summer of 2013, you can see and hear encounter with the Classical and the Contemporary.
