At The Cinema, Old Harbour Village No2, are shown quality Icelandic nature films; volcanoes, northern lights, flora and fauna. The Cinema is located in the loft of an old fishermen´s dwellings, where the fishermen used to mend their nets, tar their boats, salt their fish and overnight in bed bunks. Redoing the loft the atmosphere of the old life was kept as much as possible, even so that the salt smell still lingers, but the main object was to provide ideal settings for showing quality Icelandic nature and documentary films. By reading the reviews of our visitors on The Trip Advisor pages it seems that we are having success ...

So my friend suggested we stop here because she had read some reviews all saying that this place was great and totally worth stopping in. I was disappointed, we watched 2 documentaries and they were OK. The room is on the top floor and and set up like a living room or rec room, with chairs and chesterfields. The man... More

We were in Reykjavik for a couple days after travelling around Iceland. It was torrential rain and so we decided we would visit the Cinema No.2 to see a documentary called "Birth of an Island". It was straightforward to find and we went upstairs and waited for the previous screening to end. Once inside, we noticed that it wasn't a... More

What's not to like? It's like seeing incredible nature films in someone's cozy, welcoming living room, in fact, when we were there the cinematographer was present, along with a cute dog so happy that various friends and relatives (it's all the same to a friendly dog) had come by. Easy to stop by since it's in the Old Harbour Village.

Walking around the old harbor we noticed the "Cinema No. 2" sign and decided to check it out - up the stairs was a comfortable viewing room where we watched 2 documentaries on Iceland's volcanoes. The director / business owner was there and shared a lot of background, he was very friendly! Great way to spend a relaxing couple of... More

We had time between the end of our whale watching tour and dinner, and saw this place along the harbor, so we decided to investigate. We bought tickets for 2 movies that were filmed by an Icelandic director who owns the business. He was there during our visit so that was cool. The movies were wonderful and captivating. We sat...

We had late morning coffee in the cafe next door, then wandered into the cinema. Up a steep staircase into an old sail loft converted with comfy chairs and sofas into a place where we could see the elusive aurora and the frightening, awe-inspiring power of Icelandic volcanic eruptions from 1973 to 2012. As a group of 7 we had... More

They served food and drinks while we relaxed in the lovely little room with comfy sofas. The films were really interesting and the owner even made the films himself. I would highly recommend visiting this attraction.
